McGill24 and more…

April 2019

McGill24, McGill’s fourth annual day of giving held on Wednesday, March 13, raised nearly $2.3 million from 5,244 donors for causes across the University.

In its fourth year, McGill24 has broken records yet again, surpassing funds raised in any previous year and strengthening its position as the largest Canadian university fundraiser of its kind. The 24-hour digital fundraiser, which plays out mainly on web and social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, has raised over $6.3 million in its four-year history.

THANK YOU to everyone who participatedin supporting McGill24 and the Faculty of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences. We raised $47,000 from 150 donors with $25,000 in Challenge Funds – funds which were released from numerous generous donors, including our Faculty Advisory Board. Thanks to the generosity of our community, we enable student experiential learning and innovative programs to grow at Mac.

Launch of new thank you program for McGill!

The University has launched a new annual giving thank you initiative to improve our communication with our alumni and ensure that you, our donors, are receiving timely and impactful acknowledgments.

The thank you cards are sent within a week of receiving your donation and are similar to those you would have received directly from the Faculty.  We are also developing impact cards that will demonstrate how your donation has made a difference to our students and faculty. The thank you cards are branded under The McGill Fund which incorporate all Macdonald funds as well. Rest assured, if you have designated your donation to Macdonald for one of our priorities or a class gift, then we have received it!
