It is the generosity of owners that enables us to realize our greatest potential and make a true difference.

We need animals, and animals need us! By giving to the Atlantic Veterinary College, you are ensuring animals that are facing the greatest of challenges and fighting the worst of illnesses receive the best possible care and treatment. Your support also enables AVC to conduct research to benefit the health and welfare of animals, and to provide outstanding education for veterinarians in training who have committed their lives to caring for them.

Every gift makes a difference. Through your gift, you can recognize how AVC has impacted your life, remember a pet through a memorial, or honour a clinician or student who went the extra mile in caring for your annimal companion. Your generosity can have a lasting impact on our College in a way that is meaningful to you.

A veterinary school such as AVC requires qualified and dedicated personnel, state-of-the-art facilities and equipment and generous people like you who understand the role veterinary medicine plays in bettering our society. While our needs are widespread, some of our priorities include:

  • The growth of AVC
  • Educating the veterinarians of tomorrow
  • Capital equipment for our hospital and labs

Growth of AVC

Annual Fund

The unrestricted money raised through the Annual Fund provides resources throughout AVC. Annual Fund gifts provide the necessary flexbility to bring the most immediate impact upon the University.

Gifts in Memory of Animals

We all know the impact animals can have on our lives. When choosing to give to AVC, you may wish to give in memory or in honour of an animal that has touched your life.

Naming Opportunities

An array of options are available to donors interested in naming opportunities or sponsoring spaces at AVC. Naming opportunities include teaching spaces, research units, or specific area within our teaching hospital. We would welcome the opportunity to discuss an area of our college which you might be interested in naming or sponsoring.

Planned Giving

Planning to give to AVC in the future is as important as a gift today. Your planned gift will ensure that the future dreams of our school are realized.

Educating the veterinarians of tomorrow

Awards & Scholarships

AVC is dedicated to educating veterinary and community leaders committed to animal health, human health, public health and environmental issues of global importance. Education in veterinary medicine is a costly undertaking for students. Awards and scholarships not only recognize academic excellence but also assist in minimizing student debt. Keeping student debt low also encourages students to move on into specialized areas of study, ensuring the needs of the veterinary profession and society are met.


Making your gift to AVC is easy. Here are your options on how to give.
