Help shape
the world around us.

CBU is experiencing unprecedented growth, with students, faculty and staff coming to Cape Breton from across Canada and around the world. Our continued growth is due, in part, to support from incredible donors like you, from Cape Breton and from all over the world.

When you support Cape Breton University, you’re joining a family of alumni, friends, and community members who are working to ensure students have everything they need to succeed. Your donations help provide CBU students with the ability to explore their passions and develop the skills they’ll need to help shape the world around us.

Depending on your priorities and interests, you can choose the way you give – from scholarships and bursaries, to special acquisitions, equipment purchases, planned giving and endowments.
