Vari Hall

Though the year is quickly coming to a close, there is still time to join the hundreds of faculty, staff and retirees who have already made their 2021 donation. Thank you to all of you who have chosen to create positive change at York University this year.

Together, we are a community of changemakers who have adapted, innovated and persevered through the many challenges created by COVID-19. Our faculty, staff and students continue to pursue academic, research and professional excellence while always looking out for one another, our friends and families.

Advancement staff are preparing for a well-deserved break over the holidays.  Our office will be closed from Friday, Dec. 24 to Wednesday, Jan. 5, 2022.  While our office is closed, you can make your donation in two ways:
