StFX Day of Giving - May 12

We’re raising funds to support student financial aid at StFX, and we need your help to do it.


On Tuesday, May 12, 2020, we're re-launching the Our StFX: Changing Lives, Together campaign, a 24-hour fundraising blitz to raise money for student financial aid programs.

Stay tuned to this page in the coming weeks and months as we share more information about what these programs mean for our students, the role you can play in changing a student's life. Yes, really. You. 

What is student financial aid at StFX? 

StFX financial aid provides vital support that can make the difference between a student leaving university and finishing their degree. At StFX, student financial aid programs take many forms, including:

  • Need-based financial bursaries
  • The StFX Student Food Resource Centre, providing food to students who otherwise may go without
  • The student parent holiday fund, providing StFX student parents with resources to buy gifts and supplies for their family during the holiday season

We want to make sure any StFX student who needs financial aid programs can access them.   Will you help us?


Why Does Student Financial Aid Matter?

In many ways, it's never been more expensive to be a student. Financial hardship can make it challenging for students to focus on their education, and even with government-funded student loans many still work multiple jobs to cover living expenses and tuition fees. The challenge is made even harder for students with young families or other dependents.

For these students, financial aid programs are a lifeline. Need-based bursaries take away some of the pressure to cover tuition and textbook costs, while other initiatives like the emergency grocery card program mean that students don't have to go without basic necessities in an unexpected financial crisis.

So why does student financial aid matter? Because it lets students focus on their education instead of stressing about how to pay for it. When students have more time to devote to their studies, they are more likely to excel at their academic and personal goals.

It's simple: No one should miss out of the dream of a StFX education because of financial need. That's why we're raising funds to ensure that financial aid programs are in place for any StFX student who needs them. But we need your help!
