How to Make it Happen

We are proud and honoured that our UWindsor students have embraced this project with a $55 million commitment to be made by undergraduates, graduates and part-time students starting in 2022. Now we need your help to raise the remaining $10 million community portion to ensure that the Lancer Centre provides our students, athletes, residents, and visitors with a state-of-the-art facility, now and for generations to come.

All donations of $5,000 or more will be listed on the Lancer Centre Donor Wall, located at the main entrance. Please consider donating $1,000 a year to be part of the donor team. If you are interested in supporting the purchase of state-of-the-art equipment for our varsity and intramural teams, and of course our community user groups, just let us know and your gift will be allocated to these purchases.
