My Story…

This year more than ever, our York students are going to need our help. As a York staff member in the Division of Advancement I've seen first-hand what financial support can provide for our students. Your support enables necessities such as food, books and rent, and priceless intangibles like reassurance, hope, confidence, determination, and the belief that higher education dreams are possible. I'm raising funds for scholarships for graduate students in need at York University along with the York University Retirees' Association. Please consider supporting York students by supporting me. A tax receipt from York University will be issued directly for donations of more than $20.00. Thank you!


Please support graduate scholarships at York University by registering to walk or run 5 km in the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon on October 18. One of YURA's major activities is raising funds for graduate scholarships. On the day of the race, our volunteers will walk or run as a group, and then meet for lunch. We will have fun, and at the same time help the student community in an impactful and meaningful way through recruiting sponsors. To learn how to register to walk or run on October 18 for YURA, please contact Ian Greene at, or 416-571-8742.
