McGill24 storms in: Nearly $1.4 million raised in 24 hours

News

Mother Nature may have played a cruel, late winter trick on Montreal and McGill, forcing the University to cancel classes for the first time since the ice storm of 1998. But that didn’t stop McGill alumni, faculty, staff, students and parents from banding together online to support McGill24, the University’s second annual day of giving, which on Wednesday, March 15, raised a record-breaking $1.39 million on the strength of nearly 3,500 gifts.

Around Campus

On March 16, McGill is going to be hosting a one-day global fundraising challenge. The concept of a giving day has been popularized by Ivy League institutions in the U.S., but Canadian universities have been slower to adopt the idea, making McGill among the first in the country to undertake this type of 24-hour campaign.
