Founder's Day is our annual celebration of the generosity and vision of Sir William C. Macdonald, one of our country's leading philanthropists and Founder of Macdonald College (1907). This year, Founder’s Day will be celebrated on Thursday, February 10th.

In this McGill Bicentennial year, we’re asking you to help tell the story of Macdonald - where we have been and how we see the Faculty and the Campus evolving in the future.
Illustrator Jordana Globerman will shape your vision into seven panels that will be unveiled on Founder's Day.
