“I wanted to involve my children in learning about giving. I thought it was an important activity for them to understand — that a piece of money that normally would have gone to them would go to something else.”
Martha Crago, Vice-Principal of Research and Innovation at McGill, made a bequest to establish an undergraduate scholarship for Indigenous students.
“I’m thrilled to be a part of a university – all the innovative things that go on through the research, the professors, but also the students – each new generation is as exciting as the last.”
Ann Longhurst Vroom, BA’67, included a bequest to the McGill Library in her will.
“These kind of funds are very important. I got a scholarship when I was a student. They sometimes make the difference between a student being able to come to study at McGill or not.”
Wayne Riddell, BMus’60, DMus’14, created a bequest to support the Schulich School of Music’s Choral Studies.
