Since donations made its launch possible in 2019, Bishop’s students have found a safe harbour at BUnited— the University’s peer support service for student wellbeing. For our students, the guidance provided by compassionate peers, access to mental health workshops and activities, and a peaceful study sanctuary make all the difference.
Considering that this support center is entirely funded by charitable donations, Bishop’s University decided to support BUnited through its annual Giving Tuesday campaign that took place on November 29th. It was a huge success surpassing the original goal of $50 000 for a total of $62 425!

Mental health struggles affect us all. Students are particularly vulnerable.
Providing an antidote to loneliness and stress for students at Bishop’s University, BUnited is a leading example of a university peer support centre that is truly working to improve student’s mental well-being.
However, we can’t keep our crucial peer support centre up and running without your help. Without the funding we need to sustain BUnited and the peer supporters who run it, our students will lose the safe space they rely on. They will lose access to those they trust.
For our students, the guidance provided by a compassionate peer, grounding activities, and a peaceful study sanctuary make all the difference. BUnited contributes to a healthier, happier student community at Bishop’s. We need your help to keep this important initiative alive!
BUnited’s peer support centre is funded entirely by charitable contributions. Your donation will go directly toward paying peer supporters a living wage, facilitating activities that teach coping mechanisms, and moving the needle on positive student mental health at Bishop’s.
Donate now to sustain this much-needed service at Bishop’s! Every dollar makes a difference!
All donations received by December 31st will receive a 2022 tax receipt.
