Create an endowed gift
Create a lasting legacy today: you can make a gift that lasts forever by establishing an endowment. You may choose to name the fund for yourself, your family, or for an individual you would like to honour who has given their consent.
When you create an endowed fund, the principal amount of your donation will be invested, and the annual investment income will be used to support the faculty or area of your choice. Your gift can be structured as a multi-year pledge, and fulfilled over a number of years.
Choose your cause
Create a scholarship to open doors for deserving students, support experiential learning opportunities through an internship program, fund vital research and more. Making an endowed gift provides the unique opportunity to make a long-term impact in an area that you’re passionate about, and prepare the next generation to tackle complex global challenges.
Know the essentials
Most donors opt to fulfill their pledges over three to five years.
There are established minimums for endowed gifts. Contact us to learn more.
At the core of McGill’s priorities is a commitment to including sustainability and climate considerations across its teaching, research and community engagement mission.
Recognizing that a growing number of philanthropists share this commitment, the University is pleased to offer an innovative investment option for donors making an endowed gift: the Green Century Fund.
The holdings in the Green Century Fund are invested in a well-diversified portfolio of global equities that exclude companies that produce or have reserves in fossil fuels, or that generate power using thermal coal.
