Senior College: Donate

Your donation to Senior College will benefit the community, the university, and society at large, by providing needed supplies and infrastructure for the four College initiatives outlined below. Retired academics and librarians provide volunteer labour and skills to these worthy projects:

Annual Symposium. Since 2006, Senior College hosts a one-day public symposium devoted to presenting and discussing insights and research on a subject of current public interest. The topic for 2013 was “The Brain and Us.” Previous topics have included “Toronto, A World City: Meeting the Challenges” (2012) and “Immigration and Multiculturalism” (2011).

University-in-the-Community. Senior College has formed a partnership with the Workers Education Association (WEA) and Innis College to support a program that provides university-level educational content to Torontonians who for financial, heath, family or other reasons are unable to attend university.

• The University’s Living Memory: The Senior College Encyclopedia on the History of U of T. The living memory of senior scholars is helping to build a digital encyclopedia of the history of the University of Toronto.

Continuing Research and Scholarship by Senior Scholars. This initiative will provide small grants (up to $5,000) for scholars in the later stage of their careers who do not require major funding in order to carry out their work.


The University of Toronto will issue tax receipts for any donation.  Process your donation online here using a credit card (VISA, MC, AMEX) or mail a cheque payable to University of Toronto – Senior College:
