All donations made to the University of Alberta Students’ Union go directly to students to ensure their experience and learning at the University of Alberta is supported.

The Students’ Union operates the Student Involvement Endowment Foundation (SIEF), a fund dedicated to supporting student services and providing student scholarships. If you want to directly support students, contributing to SIEF is an excellent way to do so.

About the Student Involvement Endowment Foundation (SIEF)

First established in 1992, SIEF funds 82 scholarships and provides financial support to student projects and services of the Students’ Union.
SIEF is a registered charity.

About the Students’ Union

The Students’ Union was founded over 100 years ago and counts among its alumni such prominent leaders as Peter Lougheed, Lou Hyndman, and Robert Greenhill. To support the academic lives of students, the Students’ Union provides scholarships, academic advising services, orientation and both academic and non-academic supports. The Students’ Union also oversees student groups and governance, and manages the Students’ Union Building, the living room of campus.

The Students’ Union is not a department of the University of Alberta; it is an independent organization separate from the University of Alberta and is directly governed by students. All money donated to the Students’ Union goes towards students and does not support other University of Alberta initiatives.
