We are delighted to inform you that Professor Dilson Rassier, Dean of the Faculty of Education, and Ms. Edyta Rogowska, Secretary General, will be serving as Co-Chairs of the 2018 McGill Centraide campaign. We are very excited to get to work helping to mobilize the McGill community in support of Centraide of Greater Montreal.
This is an excellent opportunity for the entire McGill community to come together in support of our neighbours in need – while having fun and strengthening our relationships with colleagues from across the University.
As you know, Centraide funds 350 agencies in Greater Montreal that help individuals and families to break the cycle of poverty and social exclusion.
In Greater Montreal, one out of seven people receives support from an agency in Centraide’s network.
Why Support Centraide?
How do you choose between rent and food? How do you stay concentrated in school with an empty stomach? Poverty and social exclusion are daily realities for about one out of six people and about one out of five children in Greater Montreal.
Please join your fellow faculty, students, and staff in making a donation to a vast network of community agencies supported by Centraide. All of these organizations help vulnerable individuals and families on the Island of Montreal, in Laval, and on the South Shore. Many have McGill connections, such as Santropol Roulant, Head and Hands, and the Genesis Legal Clinic. In the weeks to come, we will be introducing you to members of our community who are working with these organizations in the McGill Reporter. Please stay tuned.
Tag a friend!
Generosity is contagious and so is the good feeling we get from giving, and we invite you to bring others along on this amazing journey. That’s why, until the end of the campaign in early December, we will be asking you to “tag a friend” when you make a gift, attend an on-campus event, or volunteer at a Centraide-supported organization. We encourage you to find just one person to do the same. Check out the McGill-Centraide Campaign website for more details on how to share your story on social media.
