Gift ClubsYour gift empowers students. You can’t see the impact of your gift every day so we wanted to convey our gratitude to you in other ways. One of the most exciting ways we recognize your support is through three recognition groups:

  • Angela Merici Heritage Society (cumulative gifts greater than $10,000)

The Angela Merici Heritage Society recognizes donors who have made cumulative gifts greater than $10,000 to Brescia University College. Angela Merici formed the company of St. Ursula in Brescia, Italy, in 1535.

  • Josephine Gaukler Society (legacy gifts)

Josephine Gaukler was Brescia’s first planned gift donor, bequeathing $228,000 to build the current Ursuline Hall. In honour of Josephine, the Josephine Gaukler Society was formed to recognize donors who have made provisions for a future gift to Brescia, showing a strong commitment to the development of future female leaders.

  • Leaders in Action Monthly Giving Club

Leaders in Action is a monthly giving program for Brescia University College. It recognizes donors that make an ongoing commitment to the University. We consider our monthly donors leaders because they are committed to making an ongoing difference in our students lives on a regular basis.


All members of the above-mentioned gift clubs will receive:

  • Recognition in all appropriate donor recognition publications
  • Invitations to special events and Brescia activities
