Endowed Gifts

Establishing an endowment is a great option for donors who wish to make a large, transformative gift to McGill’s Faculty of Medicine that will last in perpetuity.

When you endow a gift, it is structured so that the principal amount is invested and preserved, while only the investment income is used on an annual basis. As a result, endowed gifts last forever by generating stable funding for donor-specified purposes, such as scholarships, fellowships, chairs, buildings, academic programs or the Faculty of Medicine’s Greatest Needs.

Corporate and Foundation Giving

Mutually beneficial partnerships with the private and non-profit sectors empower McGill’s Faculty of Medicine. Thanks to corporate and foundation giving, we can together provide greater support for students, strengthen our academic programs and research initiatives, and have an even greater impact on society – locally, nationally and internationally. We look at the needs and priorities of your company or charitable organization and offer options matching them with opportunities within McGill’s Faculty of Medicine.
