Welcome to Lakehead Giving

Lakehead Giving is a unique funding platform for University projects, both large and small.  It allows individuals of all means to make an impact on specific University initiatives that they feel connected to.  In fact, project champions/leaders and supporters will be able to share projects with their friends and social networks, encouraging them to make gifts as well.

The Lakehead Giving platform is administered by the Annual Fund and Alumni Engagement Office of External Relations.

For details, please contact Annual Fund and Alumni Engagement Associate, Anna Sampson by email at anna.sampson@lakeheadu.ca or by phone at 807-343-8972.
