The Power of Engagement
SFU’s $250 million fundraising campaign aims to raise funds for initiatives that will support the university's strategic vision: To be the leading engaged university defined by its dynamic integration of innovative education, cutting-edge research and far-reaching community engagement.
Campaign messaging was developed to inspire people to make gifts by clearly demonstrating the “multiplier” impact of donations. The case statement, campaign video and launch event worked together to showcase, through stories and diagrams, how recent gifts have made a difference for students, research and our communities.
“When we first started looking at Switch Materials for an investment it was Erica’s description of the company, market and opportunity that helped us understand the true potential. Since then we have done three rounds of funding. Thanks Erica.”
