Description of the designation:
The Alex Trebek Innovation and Challenge Fund
This fund was established with the generous contribution of Mr. Alex Trebek, one of the University’s well-known alumni and host of the popular TV game show Jeopardy! Administered by the University’s Centre for Global and Community Engagement, the fund provides support for innovative projects undertaken by students and professors eager to address pressing social or development issues, both in Canada and abroad. Mr. Trebek has kindly offered to match donations made to the fund, up to $100,000 each year for three years. When you make a gift to the Alex Trebek Fund, you will have a positive impact on Canadian and international communities in need.
