Giving from the U.S.



Strong ties

Over 21,000 McGill alumni and friends live in the United States. To help them stay connected to the University, the McGill Alumni Association supports regional branches across the country. Members of these alumni and parent groups host hundreds of events every year and serve as our ambassadors in their communities.

American supporters

For McGill alumni in the U.S., it has never been easier to donate to the University. As a McGill graduate – or as an immediate family member of a McGill grad – you can give directly to the University. Give now >>
