Why Giving Matters

The McGill Fund

The McGill Fund is all about the power of collective giving. By joining thousands of loyal alumni, parents, faculty, staff, students and friends in making a gift to the University through The McGill Fund, you equip McGill with the tools it needs to provide immediate support to students University-wide.

Gifts to The McGill Fund also allow the University to respond to emerging opportunities while sustaining programs and services vital to enhancing the student experience. Annual support solidifies McGill’s commitment to student learning and wellness, to innovative educational opportunities, and to the pursuit of groundbreaking research.

The McGill Fund is a “living endowment” in which all gifts can be likened to income earned from the interest of a major endowment. In other words, it would take an endowment of $250 million to produce the results achieved through all collective gifts received in 2018. This astonishing outcome is only possible when donors unite to support the areas of the University that matter to them the most.
