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!

OMG guess who won?!

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

That’s right—studies have shown that learning how to play music at a young age can improve development of the left side of the brain, particularly the areas involved in language and reasoning.

Class Action 2011: BYOB Kiosk Having a Big Impact

We’ve reached our goal – Class Action 2011 has raised $13,000! That amount pays for the cost of the mobile water kiosk that dispenses purified municipal water, which the Office of Sustainability so nicely purchased for us even before all the funds were raised. That way we could have it in time for Convocation.
