Foundation Leadership

Foundation Leadership

Mount Royal is privileged to count many of Calgary's prominent leaders among our staunchest supporters, engaged in a variety of ways, including the Foundation Board of Directors and the Board of Governors.

Mount Royal University Foundation

The Foundation plays a pivotal role in support of Mount Royal's vision of creating exceptional learning experiences for a world of possibilities. We are proud to advance this vision by cultivating long-term and inspired relationships with the community and raising funds for the university's priorities: from more scholarships and bursaries for students to innovative programs and initiatives and state-of-the-art campus spaces.

Thank you for your enduring interest in our shared success.
