Hey Agora friends!
Hope you had a good extra-long winter break. Unfortunately, we’ll have to start term 2 with some bad news which is that we will still be closed. We’ll still be maintaining our online presence just as we have done over the past term and coming up with new events and collabs. There are a lot of ways to keep track of us and to support us. We recommend visiting these links to check out all our social media, newsletter, and more!
Happy new year and good luck!
2020 hasn’t been the greatest of years, but finally, it’s almost over. The countdown to 2021 starts today and we’d like to thank everyone for sticking with us this past year. Despite closing early in March and moving our presence online last semester, we’re lucky that so many people have continued to support us. We hope to continue our online presence into the new year and to keep you up to date about Agora’s plans. Stay tuned.
As for tonight, celebrate safely and Happy New Year!!
In collaboration with Sprouts, we’re launching our Holiday Cookbook. For $10 you get virtual access to over 20 recipes that you can make for the holidays, contributed by both us and Sprouts. Meanwhile, your $10 goes towards supporting both our businesses.

WE DID IT!!!!
Thanks to you, we have reached our $1500 goal for our crowdfunding campaign. We can now buy all the necessary safety equipment needed in order to reopen our cafe safely. All the execs of Agora would like to extend a big thanks to all who have supported us in the past month by sharing or donating.
For those who have donated, keep an eye out in the next few days for an email to see if you won our holiday cookbook giveaway. There will be 3 winners, each receiving a copy of our cookbook.
Again, many thanks to you all!!
Since the café was shut down back in March due to Covid-19, Agora has been facing financial difficulties that would make it hard for us to reopen safely. With the start of November, we are launching our 1-month crowdfunding campaign. Before the café can reopen in the future, the café requires upgrades that meet the safety standards set out by UBC and the province of BC. This campaign allows us to raise enough money to purchase the necessary equipment and materials that will allow us to implement our safety strategy. This includes the installation of plexiglass, PPE, and proper sanitation methods. $1500 was calculated to be the necessary amount of funds needed to facilitate our reopening.
Agora Café appreciates any help that we receive from people like you. Even if you are not in a position to give, we encourage that you share our campaign (https://bit.ly/34w3Lpx) and our social media posts with your friends and family. The shift to online learning has posed a great challenge to us by hindering our ability to connect with students and faculty, but we thank you to those who continue to support us online.
Support our crowdfunding campaign below and surf our website to learn about our café and the people who run it. The multiple ways that you can support us can be found here. THANK YOU!!
