On Sunday, Nov. 15, York University celebrated National Philanthropy Day.

National Philanthropy Day is a time to pay tribute to the tremendous contributions those in the York community have made in students’ lives, and to the world. “Thank you to each and every one of York University’s visionary philanthropists for their longstanding support of York,” said York University Vice-President of Advancement Jeff O’Hagan.

“This year in particular I have seen the true, heart-warming power of philanthropy,” said O’Hagan. “When the pandemic hit and students needed urgent financial aid to cover unexpected costs, you stepped up to help. Your impact on our students during this difficult time will be remembered for years to come.”

With the power of giving and through their actions, York’s volunteers and philanthropists will build a new generation of changemakers and create a more innovative, just, and sustainable world.

“We are deeply grateful for the support of our alumni, donors, faculty, staff, students, the York University Alumni Board, and members of York’s Board of Governors,” said O’Hagan. “York would not be the place that it is today, without you.  Together, we have achieved so much, and we look forward to what’s to come.”
