100 reasons to care

There has been an incredible response to the Southern Alberta Institute of Technology (SAIT) 100 Projects project to celebrate the post-secondary’s centennial.

While there are some great projects already in the works, SAIT alumni still have plenty of time to help reach 100 projects for 100 years of SAIT.

“It’s been really exciting to see all of the unique and innovative project proposals brought forward since the launch ― they’ve been nothing short of impressive,” says Cathy Downey, SAIT’s Centennial Project Director.

Projects range from indigenous awareness initiatives to student mentorship opportunities and mental health events. Those already complete include the SAIT Dental Clinic SMILES Clinic for vulnerable populations, making dinners for sick children and their families, supporting homeless members of our community with care packages, among others.

Get involved with 100 Projects

Downey says grads who are already giving back to their own community can easily participate.

“I know many of our alumni are longtime volunteers or already donate time to charitable projects and initiatives, both on and off campus. We want to recognize these efforts ― they all count as a 100 Projects project.”

To participate in 100 Projects, alumni can lead their own charitable project, champion a project in their workplace or to join a SAIT-led project. All completed projects will be highlighted on the centennial website.

“This community has a lot of heart, and I am very confident we will meet and surpass 100 projects,” Downey says. “Let’s keep the momentum going.”
