At age 28, Dale Regehr, president and CEO of WestStone Properties, is the largest and youngest donor to SFU’s Surrey campus. His $1-million donation is the first contribution to the campus’ $2-million Close to Home campaign, which aims to fund scholarships for new students with high academic achievement, student leadership and community involvement. Regehr’s company is building a $1-billion master-planned community, called Urban Village, beside the campus in Surrey’s city centre.

"SFU and I have the same goals and beliefs," says Regehr. "We believe in the growth of Surrey and the South Fraser, we believe that community involvement and international development go hand in hand, and that people are the most important ingredient for a successful future." Regehr’s generous contribution was recognized with an official unveiling of the Dale B. Regehr Grand Hall, the main entrance and community hub for the campus.

"Dale shows tremendous commitment to the South Fraser region," says SFU President Michael Stevenson. "His contribution will help ensure that front-ranking programs at the Surrey campus are accessible to all of the community."
