Thank you for your continuing support of Ryerson and our students. With many staff still working remotely, the processing time for gifts received by mail is longer than usual. Printed receipts can be provided on request, otherwise e-receipts will be issued.

We encourage anyone looking to make a donation to do so via our secure online donation form. Tax receipts will be automatically sent by email

For any questions regarding your donation or receipt please email Sergio Chiodo at

Thank you again for your generosity and your understanding.

Message to alumni and friends from Ryerson president, Mohamed Lachemi.
