Why support Humber Gives?

See what donors and students are saying


“I didn't want to rely on student loans, and thankfully Humber has made it easy for students like me to access and apply for awards and scholarships that help with financial sustainability.”

— Cassandra
Bachelor of Applied Arts, Paralegal Studies


“I read somewhere that the number one reason students drop out of college is because they don't have enough money to pay for it. With that said, it's very important that we provide them with enough assistance financially to be successful in their programs. This is why awards and scholarships are important.”

— Mathusha (Matty) Maheson
Customer Service Coordinator, Humber International


“Students need scholarships. This support is life changing for many of us and has helped me (and many students like me) afford the supplies and resources I need to do well in my studies.”

Child and Youth Care, Accelerated Program


“I think people should give to Humber Gives because it will make a difference in our students' lives by alleviating their financial stress, allowing them to concentrate on their studies while working towards making a positive impact on the world.”

— Hannah Song
Compensation & Benefits Specialist, HR Services


“Students don't have much wiggle room when it comes to finances, beyond the basic necessities. Scholarships made a lasting impact on me at a time in my life when I needed it the most.”

— Adam
Bachelor of Nursing


“Awards and scholarships have carried me the extra mile. Not only do they help students like me overcome financial obstacles, but they also demonstrate that there are people out there who value the work and perseverance you are putting into your studies.”

— Shirsha
Bachelor of Music, Voice


“Choosing to become a Humber Gives donor was very simple – I call it paying it forward. We need to ensure that we are investing in the next generation of our workforce and inspiring others to do the same. As an Administrative leader here at Humber, I want to set a good example to my fellow employees that even if the gift is made in small increments, it can make a huge difference.”

— Rudi Fischbacher
Acting Dean, School of Hospitality, Recreation & Tourism


“My scholarship has given me the confidence and inspiration to do even better. A big stress load is now gone and this has made the entire Humber experience worth living!”

— Rewa
General Arts and Science - University Transfer


“Why Humber Gives? I put my money where my heart is. For the price of a couple of lattes, I can walk the talk. Anything we can do to make it easier for students to come to Humber – that’s what I want to do.”

— Alison Maclean
Program Co-ordinator/Professor, Creative Book Publishing


“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.”

— Daniel Castillo-Sanchez
Manager, Financial Aid, Office of the Registrar


“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.”

— Linda Chao
Associate Director, International Recruitment and Market Development, Asia


“My professors encouraged me to apply for scholarships. It was amazing to receive this support and to be recognized. It made me feel really good, and it makes me want to work even harder. I can do it!.”

— Tinapreet
Second Year, Bachelor of Behavioural Science


“I received scholarship help and as a student it made all the difference to me. It was one of my goals to start giving back as soon as I could. I started a named annual scholarship and I want to start another one in the near future.”

— Risha Toney
Recruitment Advisor, Office of the Registrar


“I’ve been a part of Humber Gives since the beginning. As a Humber Alumnus, I also owe an enormous debt to the College for the fulfillment of my career dreams. Helping students succeed is how I pay it forward.”

— Peter Madott
Associate Dean, The Business School
