In 2015, the official Vanier College Productions Alumni Network was formed and since that time, we have been increasing the number of opportunities for alumni to participate with VCP (alumni nights, holiday party, breaking curtain, summer BBQ). At the inaugural 2016 VCP Family BBQ, we announced the launch of the VCP@50 Campaign, with a goal to raise $250,000 by the end of VCP's 50th Anniversary Season in 2021-2022.
Many of you have had the privilege to be a part of VCP as a student, to work with Fred, Nancy, John, Brian, Dave, Theresa, Tom, and many many incredible alumni who continue to come back to York to support future generations of VCP students. As many of you are aware, VCP provides a safe and inclusive space for students at York to get involved, belong, learn, and make lifelong friendships. Students continually tell me that for many of them, VCP is the reason that they have stayed at York beyond their first year of study.
The VCP@50 Campaign will create a secure and lasting legacy for future generations of VCP students. Your gift will help ensure a VCP experience will be there for students at York indefinitely. To make a charitable donation, please visit giving.yorku.ca/vcp where you can choose between a one-time end-of-year donation and a recurring monthly gift.
Translating our $250,000 goal into numbers, between now and the end of 2022, we will reach our goal if 694 people commit to $5/month or 69 people commit to $50/month. Whether it's a coffee ($5), lunch ($10), theatre ticket ($25), or dinner for two ($50) that you are able to donate every month to VCP's future, you will be contributing significantly to the university experience for students at VCP for years to come.
