Thanks to NSCAD’s Generous #GivingTuesday 2022 Donors!

Reducing food insecurity is an important priority for NSCAD University. Thanks to the J & W Murphy Foundation for spotlighting this issue across the province and supporting our post-secondary students.

This year we raised over $10,600 – exceeding our $7,000 goal. These donations fund a needs-based grocery card gift card bursary program and enable the SUNSCAD Foodbank to keep an inventory of in-demand items, not provided through other donations.

Thank you for helping our students focus on their creative practices and education!

“The student experience is the most important aspect of the work we do at NSCAD University, and it is my focus as President. Healthy food and housing are the most fundamental needs our students must address so they may engage with their creative practices. A heartfelt thank you to the J & W Murphy Foundation for shining a light on food security for post-secondary students across the province and for making an investment in addressing this issue. I am also so grateful to the members of our community for supporting this important campaign.”
Dr. Peggy Shannon
President NSCAD University
“I am overwhelmed and so pleased by the generosity of the NSCAD community! A huge Thank You to everyone for supporting this campaign and to the J & W Murphy Foundation for providing the matching gifts. The funds raised are going to help us better meet the needs of our student community throughout the year. SUNSCAD and NSCAD are working together to create the conditions for student success, and access to nutritious food is an integral part of that equation. On behalf of myself and all the hardworking volunteers at the food bank, we are all so grateful for the amazing Giving Tuesday Campaign!”
