Alumni and Annual Giving

There are more than 69,000 Lakehead University Alumni living and working all over the world. In collaboration with the Alumni Association, the Alumni and Annual Giving Group is responsible for the implementation of Lakehead for Life, a five-year alumni engagement plan. Built on five pillars of engagement, including our current students, Lakehead for Life strives to build lifelong relationships with our alumni through the creation and delivery of programming, the offering of member benefits, and through the development of meaningful communication. We act as an engagement and outreach resource for students, staff and faculty, and welcome the opportunity to consult with departments and faculties with regard to engagement with their graduates. This engagement may take the form of newsletters, reunions, gatherings, fundraising projects, and other initiatives.

In addition to our alumni engagement work, we also encourage philanthropic support for the Lakehead Annual Fund, campus projects, and a variety of academic and non-academic activities. Our office coordinates a number of initiatives every year that touch our campus community such as a Day of Giving, an annual golf tournament, and the crowdfunding platform - Lakehead Giving. In addition, we encourage campus giving, which includes payroll deduction and monthly or annual giving. All gifts may be designated to an area or project of your choice.
