Leadership Gifts

The commitment made by leadership donors enriches teaching, research and student life, and inspires others to follow their example.

Keystone of Concordia’s annual fund

Whether providing a faculty with the ability to bring in guest lecturers or creating scholarships and bursaries to provide students access to higher education, leadership gifts sustain the Campaign for Concordia: NEXT.GEN. NOW and advance Canada’s next-generation university.

Leadership gifts are crucial to the university and impact how we are able respond to financial challenges that arise throughout the academic year. 

In 2022-23, more than 800 donors led the way with Leadership gifts. The combined support from this distinguished group made up 73 per cent of the total funds raised.

Concordia’s Leadership Circles recognize our most generous annual donors:

  • Deans' Circle: Donors who make annual gifts of $500 to $1,999
  • President's Circle: Donors who make annual gifts of $2,000 or more
