Ways to Give

Support McGill your way

From the breadth of our research to the backgrounds of our students, McGill is one of North America’s most diverse universities. It’s only natural that the methods for giving back are just as comprehensive.

Annual giving

Most alumni, friends and parents support McGill through the Annual Fund, which helps the University meet its most pressing needs and pursue its most promising opportunities on a yearly basis. If you’re looking to support a faculty or school, an athletics program, libraries, or the Montreal Neurological Institute, this is the place to start. Here you can also find more information on student aid programs or simply make an open, unrestricted gift toward McGill’s greatest needs. Learn more >>

Specialized gifts

As a result, this website also contains sections with information for individuals or groups of donors who require more specialized information. Click on the following links to learn more about:


Something for younger donors

Seeds of Change is an innovative new program from McGill’s Alma Mater Fund. We asked recent graduates what causes are most dear to their hearts, and then built a program where these worldly, conscientious individuals can give an amount that fits their budget but still makes a big impact.
