You did it: Shannon Sarro gets a little help and a loving squeeze from her mom Diane while trying on a graduation gown in advance of the U of A’s 2013 spring convocation ceremonies.

The University of Alberta raised $119.4 million last fiscal year—second only to the previous year’s record of $162.7 million—fuelled by record levels of donations to the faculties of medicine & dentistry and arts.
More than 20,180 individuals, foundations and corporations donated in 2012-13, including 4,700 first-time donors. The results come as the university has increased its commitment to engaging with alumni and donors, and deepening and broadening its philanthropic outreach efforts over the past few years.
“Our donors continue to make a strong statement about their support for a vibrant and healthy University of Alberta,” says President Indira Samarasekera. “We are honoured by their support and their desire to see our alumni, students, staff, teachers and researchers succeed. They’ve made it clear that they believe in our mission.”
