How to Give

Annual Fund

The UTSC Annual Fund endeavors to build and maximize unrestricted support for the most immediate and urgent needs of UTSC as well as the needs that make a difference for our students. The Annual Fund ensures that we are able to meet the needs of today while building a strong foundation for the future.

Your gift this year will help UTSC:

  • Increase financial aid for students through admission, in-course and merit-based scholarships

  • Increase student support through professional development initiatives, and volunteer and mentorship programs

  • Improve research opportunities for students by contributing to fellowships, graduate scholarships and state of the art research facilities

Leader to Leader Society

The Leader to Leader Society recognizes and rewards our dedicated alumni and friends who have made a generous annual donation of $1,000 or more towards UTSC and who share our commitment to providing our students with first class academic education, resources and opportunities for success.

To show our appreciation for your generosity and commitment to UTSC, Leader to Leader Society members receive various benefits including:

  • Invitations to UTSC events with opportunities to meet our faculty, fellow Leader to Leader members, students and special guests

  • Invitations to exclusive tours of new UTSC facilities and campus development

  • Recognition in our UTSC Annual Report and other forms of communication

  • Invitation to an exclusive Leader to Leader Society event

Gifts of $1,827 or more will entitle you to membership and all the benefits of University of Toronto’s President’s Circle.

Planned Giving

A planned gift is a deferred gift that enables you to leave a lasting legacy at UTSC.  Your planned gift can be structured in a variety of ways and may provide a significant tax advantage for your estate.

Planned gifts can include bequests, retirement funds, stocks and securities, gifts-in-kind, charitable remainder trusts, gifts of residual interest and life insurance.

The Office of Gift Planning staff is dedicated to finding the most efficient, personally advantageous method for each donor to make his or her gift. If you are considering a planned gift, we recommend you do so in consultation with your financial planner and/or legal counsel. Or email us at and one of our staff can provide assistance.

Matching Gifts

Many employers sponsor matching gift programs and will match any charitable contributions made by their employees. The impact of your charitable gift to UTSC may be matched by your company.

Find out if your company is eligible, request a matching gift form from your employer, complete, sign, and send it with your gift.

To make your contribution, please contact Regan Tigno at or 416-287-5631.
