Brown, a former chair of the USask board of governors and USask alumna, supports the Edwards School of Business through the Dean’s Circle which provides student awards, experiential learning and career support.

The Agricultural Students’ Association (ASA) has been recognized in the Youth In Philanthropy category for its outstanding community efforts in championing leadership. 

The ASA engages Agriculture and Bioresources students by connecting with their peers while supporting a number of community initiatives and organizations. Most notable is the biennial Agros Bed Push, where they push a bed frame to Regina from Saskatoon. In 2020, they raised more than $55,000 for Telemiracle. 

Every year on Nov. 15, people and organizations are recognized and honoured for the countless ways philanthropy makes a difference in our lives and our communities.
