Monthly donors are our Skule™ Friends – our most committed and loyal donors who give back to support our students. Monthly donors ensure that the Faculty has the resources to continue providing exceptional engineering education.
Skule™ Friends will receive special event invitations, updates, and a pair of Skule™ socks. Our small way to say 'thank you' for helping us put our best foot forward!
Why become a monthly donor?
- It’s affordable & convenient – monthly giving is a great way to include charitable donations in your budget. Giving a small amount each month can be more manageable than making a larger annual gift. By setting up automatic payments, you can also avoid forgetting, reduce administrative costs and save time and paper. Some people even collect credit card loyalty points/miles!
- It’s sustainable & impactful – Monthly donations allow the Faculty to plan around a consistent source of support. To make your gift even more meaningful, you can designate your donation to something close to your heart – bolstering student clubs, enhancing student financial assistance, or supporting your department.
- It’s exciting – you'll be hearing from us throughout the year with news and updates on how your gift is making a difference. And, you will get a pair of awesome Skule™ socks.
You will receive one annual tax receipt for your monthly contributions. You can change, pause or cancel your donation at any time.
All gifts (big and small) make an impact. Here are some examples of the kinds of things your monthly contribution to the Annual Skule Fund supports:
or $120 a year
Can help a first-year student purchase an engineering textbook.
or $300 a year
Can help purchase a compact 3D printer for Engineering's Fabrication Lab.
or $600 a year
Can provide prototype funds for a student start-up to launch their business idea.
or $1,020 a year
Can offset travel costs for students working in remote communities on a capstone or research project.
As a student, I was fortunate to have received alumni support. It meant the world to me to be recognized for my hard work. Now as a Skule graduate, it’s my turn to do my part so that our students have even more opportunities available to them. I decided to be a monthly donor because its an easy way for me to keep up my contribution and, I receive an annual tax receipt.

The years I spent at UofT Engineering were not only some of the best years of my life – but also the years that prepared me well for my future professional life. That incredible pay-off allows me to give back something every month to others in appreciation for the benefits given to me.
