Dental Outreach: Filling Local Needs

McGill’s Dental Outreach Program offers free dental care to those with financial hardships, physical and mental disabilities, as well as lack of insurance. It has been providing free dental care within the Montreal community for 16 years, and with your help, we will be able to continue to help individuals with the adversities mentioned above. After having volunteered for Outreach, we were able to understand that these individuals represent a large portion of the population, and that McGill dental students work hard to make their dental visit pleasant, allowing them to leave with smiles on their faces. Our Seeds of Change crowd-funding campaign will help maintain Outreach’s optimal standard of care for patients and, as previously mentioned, help treat more patients since dental care is not universally provided.

Social Economy Impact Internship: Pairing Incredible Students with Social-Purpose Organizations

You planted the seeds, now see how they’ve grown!

During the summer we were proud to launch McGill’s first crowdfunding platform, Seeds of Change, to graduating students like yourself. The response we received to this initiative was incredible: during a two month test period of the website, nearly 400 donors gave close to $18,000 to nine different projects! Thank you so much for your support. But that was just a warm up… the site is going live to a much wider audience in mid-September, so stay tuned!

We recently drew the names of the winners of the Seeds of Change prizes for the graduation class of 2013.
