humber gives

Humber Gives is our annual fundraising initiative where Humber employees and members of the Humber community raise much needed funds for Humber students.

Message from our Co-chairs

“Humber Gives has given me the opportunity to honour my late sister, Angela Iacobucci, and her dedication to leadership, and education for underprivileged students.”

Alvina Cassiani
Dean, School of Business  
Humber Gives Campaign Co-Chair 2018

“I enthusiastically support Humber Gives because the campaign supports students.  Heroic students whose dedication to their education is awe inspiring. Students who achieve outstanding grades in spite of facing financial challenges. We all teach students like this. They deserve our respect and support. Yet, sadly, many will not get scholarships because of insufficient funds. By donating to Humber Gives, I help ensure that every deserving student will graduate.”

“When I first heard about Humber Gives, I said, sign me up! This is my community, my second home and the campaign is my opportunity to give back. I received bursaries from Humber. They helped a lot, alleviated stress, and helped me get through my program. Humber is my place of education, work, and today it feels like home.”

“I talk to my students, I know what they face, day-to-day. Many students struggle with money issues so that is why I help with my donation to Humber Gives. I also invite some international students into my home for a home cooked meal every year to celebrate Chinese New Year together. It’s the little things that help to make them feel welcome and comfortable.”
