The McGill Fund

Made by the power of collective giving. Putting your gifts into action one academic year at a time.

Students need support throughout their academic year.

By joining nearly 26,000 loyal alumni, parents, faculty, staff, students and friends in making an annual gift to the University through The McGill Fund, you provide the flexible funding we need to provide immediate support to students University-wide.

Gifts through The McGill Fund allow the University to respond to emerging opportunities like experiential educational initiatives and equipment used in groundbreaking research, while sustaining vital programs and services, like student bursaries and wellness programs.

Many channels for giving exist, including monthly giving that ensures a continuous stream of support to help our students succeed.

Did you know? It would take an endowment of $250 million to produce the $12.9 million collectively raised in 2022-23.

McGill Student Phonathon

For decades, the McGill Student Phonathon has fulfilled the important role of connecting current students with alumni and the broader McGill community. The Phonathon is made up of dedicated students, committed to making a real difference in the lives of their peers through fundraising for critical programs and projects across the University. Phonathon jobs offer students the opportunity to engage in rewarding work while developing valuable professional skills and work experience.

Our Phonathon is a completely secure way to make your donation to McGill. Our students take the privacy of our community very seriously, and the program is designed to maximize the security of your confidential information.

The Phonathon phone number is 514-398-7699. If you get a call from this number, rest assured that an earnest McGill student is on the line ready to share the latest McGill news, answer your questions, and help you make a meaningful contribution to the University.
