FAQs

What does Impact do?

Impact SFU is a Surrey-based club. We plan events at the Surrey Campus to encourage student involvement and make this smaller SFU campus feel like a community. We also strive to develop volunteer and leadership opportunities for students, all while donating to the Beautiful World Canada Foundation. 

Beautiful World is a Toronto-based non-profit that provides scholarships to underprivileged girls in Sub-Saharan Africa. To learn more about BWC, click here: https://beautifulworldcanada.org/


What kind of events does Impact hold?

Impact holds events at the SFU Surrey Campus, including study sessions, de-stress events, fundraisers, and speaker panels. Events aim to educate, de-stress, or just spread joy. 

Proceeds made from our events go to the Beautiful World Canada Foundation.
