Administrative history

The University of British Columbia's Development Office was established in 1986/87 with funding from the university's General Purpose Operating Fund and cost recovery on donations to the campaign. The Development Office has been a part of External Affairs since 1999/2000. Its primary function is to advance the university's vision by increasing private sector funding for campus initiatives. In addition, the Office provides fundraising expertise and assistance. The Development Office has established a strong base of ongoing donor support for UBC. It develops effective campus-based fundraising programs and approaches. The Office also raises money annually on behalf of UBC faculties, programs, and projects.
The Development Office includes Faculty Fundraising, Campaign Operations, Gift and Estate Planning and Awards and the UBC Fund.
