Stories about Giving at Ryerson

Ryerson is committed to building a caring community. When we see opportunities to give back, we forge relationships with like-minded organizations in order to increase our societal impact. That’s why we’re thrilled to be supporting United Way Greater Toronto through our campaign. Here are a few stories from our last campaign that demonstrate our commitment to helping United Way Greater Toronto achieve their goals.

Ryerson University is committed to contributing and engaging with our broader community. Each fall we rally support for Ryerson’s United Way campaign, and every year staff, faculty and students showcase their commitment to giving back. We’re asking again for your support because we know that great things happen when the Ryerson community collaborates.

Now in its second year, the Your Neighbour project is a learning experience that connects students engaged with Ryerson's Housing & Residence Life with the Toronto community. Your Neighbour aims to strengthen the connection between city and campus by establishing relationships between organizations and students who want to be active and contribute to their community.

When Rudhra Persad moved to Canada 10 years ago, he needed a new start. He volunteered at the YMCA - a United Way Greater Toronto member agency - while attending Ryerson University, and is now a staff member in the Tri-Mentoring program. Through unique people, Ryerson supports the United Way Greater Toronto.
