This past year SAIT students, employees, alumni and friends have been busy – being charitable that is. When SAIT's centennial team set a target to complete 100 charitable projects during SAIT’s centennial year we were told it couldn’t be done. Not only have we reached our target, we’re still going strong!
The 100 Projects Project has been a great opportunity for the SAIT community to share our skills, passion and enthusiasm with our city and the world – we’ve had projects in our own backyard and around the globe. It’s inspiring.
In true SAIT fashion, reaching our goal of 100 projects wasn’t enough. In honour of Canada’s 150th birthday this year, a new goal of completing 150 projects before June 15 has been set.
You can still participate. Volunteering your time, or collecting and donating for a cause all count as charitable endeavours. Even if it’s already completed, you’re still able to add your project to the list by contacting Jodi Currie.
Join one of the remaining SAIT-led projects still in need of volunteers.
