Foundation and giving

Marianopolis provides financial support to close to 300 students every year. This means that your donation can help a deserving student attend and graduate from the College.

The first words of the College’s Mission are, “the student is the centre of the Marianopolis learning community.” This means that Marianopolis continues to support nearly 100 clubs dedicated to such worthy causes as defending human rights, tackling environmental issues and engaging in charitable work.

Marianopolis students come from over 175 high schools, public and private, English and French, throughout Montreal and the world. This means that your donation honours the College’s century-old commitment to being accessible to a diverse group of students.

Our historic campus is being renovated to today’s standards, in part with federal government funding to improve learning and teaching spaces. This means that the College’s bedrock value of offering transformative education is recognized at the highest levels.

About 98 percent of Marianopolis students go on to university after graduation. This means that when you give to Marianopolis you are directly investing in the future of a bright young person who will positively impact the world.

Thanks to their generosity, the Foundation disburses almost half a million dollars annually to the one in five Marianopolis students who rely on financial aid.
