Our Supporters

With Our Thanks

From increasing the number of student awards to fostering ground-breaking research, from helping launch innovative and industry-driven programs to expanding community partnerships – our donors are making Ryerson a top-tier destination for transformative learning. Our students become future leaders because our supporters step up with care, compassion, and belief in their potential. We are so grateful for the impact each and every donor has on Ryerson and our students.

Lifetime donors of $1 million or more

Donors of $1 million or more shape how our students experience education, and invest in a strong and sustainable future for Ryerson. We are honoured to celebrate their incredible example of leadership in philanthropy.
