Support the Mount

The University of Mount Saint Vincent has a longstanding tradition of providing exceptional educational opportunities to determined and talented students, regardless of their financial means. The University is able to maintain this noble commitment due to the remarkable generosity of its alumnae/i and friends.

Gifts to the University transform the lives of its students. Students who otherwise would be unable to pursue higher education benefit from philanthropically supported scholarships. Gifts from alumnae/i and friends also ensure the vitality of academic programs, support co-curricular and enrichment opportunities and preserve the quality of our facilities.

The value of a gift to the University is evident across the campus, and wherever our students and graduates work to improve their lives and strengthen our communities.
