Giving News


Sometimes a gift carries with it more than sixty years of love and music.

Such a gift is the new Wilma H. Clark Award(s), to be granted to Bachelor of Music Therapy students, thanks to the generosity of John T. Clark (’52 and DCL ’10) and his family via the J.T. Clark Family Foundation.

When Terry (’65) and Heather Hennigar’s daughter, Crystal, passed away from cancer in 2014, the couple wanted to do something meaningful in her honour.

A modern-day pioneer in cancer research is honouring a similar pioneer from the last century. Allen Eaves (’62) is funding the creation of a larger-than-life bronze portrait of Charles Huggins, who graduated from Acadia in 1920.

The Acadia Alumni Association has doubled its commitment to COVID-19 relief at Acadia to $100,000 by adding another $40,000 to the Student Relief Fund and earmarking $10,000 for immediate aid for international students.

Kim Meechan (’80, ’81, ’84) spent her career caring for the vulnerable in society. With three Acadia degrees in psychology (BA, BA Hons and MSc), she headed to Saskatchewan after graduation and worked for three and a half years as a psychologist for the provincial government, counselling children and families.

Acadia University’s Office of Advancement received two bronze medals at this year’s Canadian Council for the Advancement of Education (CCAE) Prix d'Excellence competition.

Thanks to the generosity of the John and Judy Bragg Foundation, up to 13 Acadia students benefit annually from the following awards, named in honour of former teachers who were Acadia alumni:

Some of the most recent recipients of these awards spoke to Acadia about their lives as students and shared their gratitude:
