IM Alumni Donations – where does the money go?

Over the course of the last few years, IM Alumni have generously donated back to the program through the end of year banquet and online donations.  With last year’s announcement of matching funds, so far we have raised over $5,000.  Of the $5,000 raised so far, how is the money spent?

This year six UBC Intramural Student Administrators were supported in attending the Western Canadian Campus Recreation Conference in Victoria where peers from across western Canada gathered to share experiences, programs and opportunities.

The information shared and gathered is brought back to UBC where those of merit are incorporated.  Students in this experience become aware of how their own UBC Program compares with others across Canada while gaining confidence in networking and participating in panel and group discussions.  This opportunity and the potential it offers in the development of the UBC Program would not be possible without the support of the IM Alumni.

Financial support has also been given for the purchase of Program equipment and devices along with the IM Alumni Award Trophy and keepsake.

The University community, as well as Canada, have both recognized the contribution made to student life through the development of an innovative and attractive Intramural and Recreation Program.  The desire is to continue and expand this experience through the involvement of Alumni, be it through its Council, REC Summit, Newsletter or Banquet financial support.

All are urged to continue to be involved in a Program which has meant so much to so many people over the years and which continues to shine year in and year out.
