Monthly payroll deduction

The most sustainable way to make a difference is by making regular payroll deductions over the course of the year. You can sign up for payroll deduction donations by following the personalized link included in the emails you receive from the Centraide campaign to your McGill email account. Once on the Centraide website, select the payment option, “payroll deduction,” and specify the total amount you want to give. Your donation will then be spread out evenly over 26 pay cycles. If you can’t locate your personalized email, please email [at] (Charles Wan).

If you already signed up for automatic payroll deduction, thank you! You don't have to do anything to renew your commitment for the 2021 Campaign. At any time during the campaign, you can go online to change your donation amount securely and confidentially by clicking the personalized link you received. 


Leadership challenge

Last year, over 100 McGill donors qualified as Centraide “Leaders” by giving $1,200 or more, and 7 McGill donors qualified as "Major donors" by giving $10,000 or more.

In 2015, Centraide introduced new minimum of $1,200 for Leadership gifts. Prior to this, Centraide had not raised its minimum for Leadership-level gifts since the 1980s. This increase will ensure Centraide is better positioned to meet future challenges and respond to the ever-increasing calls for its support from organizations across the Montreal area.

Major donors challenge

This year, Stephen Bronfman, Mitch Garber, Andrew Lutfy and Lino A. Saputo will double the impact of each donation made by a new Major Donor. Each new donation of $10,000 or more will be matched by this quartet of Major Donors throughout the 2021 campaign.
