Giving to UNB

Our Campaign Cabinet

Campaign Co-chairs, David Ganong and Robert Quartermain.

As co-chairs of the It Begins Here campaign, we have witnessed first-hand what it means for the UNB community to come together for a common purpose. Together, with a 40-plus volunteer Campaign Cabinet, we have engaged alumni and donors, and increased support for students, faculty and programs, and helped intensify UNB’s impact on the world.

Thanks to your support, we maintained a steady momentum throughout the campaign, so much so that we surpassed our $110 million goal. We are excited to witness the impact of this campaign at our University for years to come.

Thank you for making this campaign a success. It Begins Here. It begins with you.
