Funds & Programs

The power of many

The McGill Annual Fund is comprised of numerous giving programs, all of which help the University to meet immediate needs and foster discovery, intellectual integrity and academic excellence.

Alma Mater Fund

The Alma Mater Fund is McGill's hallmark alumni fund, which appeals to alumni to help support the University's most pressing day-to-day needs and opportunities. Gifts from graduates provide flexible financial support for teaching and research initiatives throughout McGill, as well as funding for student aid, library resources, athletics, and individual faculties and schools.

Parents Fund

The Parents Fund invites parents and grandparents of McGill students to help maintain and upgrade the University's extensive library collections, a resource that directly affects all McGill students, or to invest in another important area of their choice. Learn more >>

Parents Fund "Honour Your Grad" Program

The Parents Association provides an opportunity for parents of graduating students to make a special gift in celebration of their son's or daughter's achievements. Gifts to the Parents Fund celebrate your graduate, teach them about the importance of giving back and, of course, raise much-needed funds for McGill.

Faculty and Staff Fund

The Faculty and Staff Fund provides an additional way in which McGill employees can contribute to the University's important work.

Friends Fund

The Friends Fund encourages friends of the University to actively participate in McGill's progress and development.

Associates Fund

The Associates Fund enables members of the business community to contribute to areas with the greatest need – and the greatest potential for impact.

Reunion Class Giving

Reunion Class Giving programs allow McGill alumni to commemorate their graduation by making a collective gift to the University, helping ensure that current and future students have the same opportunities that they did.

In Honour / In Memory

A gift to McGill can be a thoughtful way to recognize or honour someone important to you, creating a legacy and memorializing the person by providing direct assistance to current and future students.

McGill Interest Groups
