This is Impact

Support our goals for 2021 and beyond by giving to Impact

The Campaign for York University, which celebrates the University’s effect on the world. We plan to raise $500 million to accelerate our influence in the face of unprecedented global challenges. Our ambitious goal includes $15 million to advance the Faculty of Environmental and Urban Change's impact in three major areas.

Mobilizing New Ways of Thinking

Support for five new faculty chairs, post-doctoral fellows, visiting scholars and interdisciplinary research will strengthen the Faculty’s capacity to offer novel solutions to real-world environmental problems.

Preparing Engaged Global Citizens

Investments will help attract more talented students and provide them with the means and opportunities to explore their passion for changing the world.

Building Stronger Communities

Your gifts to this priority will advance our efforts to take students and research into the community, and bring community partners to campus to enrich learning and research.
