Donations

Our students graduate knowing that they have begun to make a difference in the world and will continue to do so throughout their lives. Your gift to Regis College supports academic programs, continuing education, as well as scholarships and bursaries – and helps men and women serve the world with compassion and justice.

 

Serving the World is the ultimate goal of the students who study theology at Regis College. Regis College educates women and men to be leaders in education and social justice.  Through basic (Master) and advanced  (PhD) degrees, and continuing education programs, our students pursue a theological education which prepares them to serve the world in hospitals, prisons, youth centres, high schools and universities, with and for the impoverished and marginalized. Many of our graduates also go on to priestly and lay ministries such as teaching, parish and retreat work.

  • Worthy Of Your Support

    At Regis College we take pride in fulfilling our mission in a tradition of excellence.  Throughout the past 75 years, Regis has graduated leaders in philosophy, spirituality and theology.  Theologians such as Bernard Lonergan S.J., David Stanley S.J. and Margaret Brennan IHM, and their students (now professors at Regis) Bob Doran S.J., Michael Kolarcik S.J. and Meg Lavin, PhD are a testament to the excellence of our programmes and this, our community, which fosters the critical thinking necessary for academic achievement.

     

    Every year we painstakingly assess our expenditures and plan our revenues so that we can offer a first class education to our students within the confines of an educational system that values a balanced budget.  Our revenue is a result of a grant we receive from the Jesuit Fathers of Upper Canada, grants from the province of Ontario and tuitions from the students themselves.

  • Areas To Give

    The Alumni Scholarship Fund

     

    We ask you to continue in this mode of service by establishing and supporting a scholarship fund to be named in your honour: The Alumni Scholarship Fund. It offers you a very specific way in which to continue your support of the Regis mission for ministry, not just here but throughout the world, by supporting an international student studying at Regis College.

    Scholarship Criteria

     

    • Must be a Regis international student
    • Must be accepted into a basic or advanced degree program of study

     

    The scholarship will become active once a capital amount of $15,000 has been raised from which an award of $1,000 per year can be generated. We hope to reach this goal within the next five years.

     

    Our conservative investment approach at Regis College ensures that the original investment will be secure at all times, and that we receive a sound return on the invested capital without risk to the principle amount.

    The Annual Fund

    Educating for ministry in the world is much like throwing a pebble into water. The perpetual moving outward from the center is a consonant image for education at this, Canada’s only Jesuit graduate theological school. And water has a rich place in our faith; whether we think of water in the context of baptism or in the vastness of our oceans, the image of a ripple resulting from the toss of a simple pebble is the result of our student’s education here at Regis.

    The programmes offered by Regis require the support of our benefactors so that the ripple continues its outward movement. An education at Regis is not simply an activity that ends in the presentation of a degree or diploma, although that does happen. Our programmes are only successful when they change the lives of our students who enroll in them. In turn, the students whose lives are indelibly altered by these programmes move out into the world to minister to others who in turn experience the life changing values of education – one fostered by you a benefactor of Regis College.

    This year we mark our 75th anniversary with groundbreaking programmes that both inspire and engage students not only in Regis but from the entire University of Toronto campus. These programmes, in addition to the full slate of degree and diploma offerings, will not only invite others into the Regis College community; they will educate those seeking the unique and inspiring form of spirituality available at Regis College.

  • The Mission Of Our Funds

    Regis College has been supporting the mission of the Church by educating men and women for ministry for more than 80 years. As the Jesuit graduate school of Theology, we draw on a long tradition of teaching to educate students for ministry in our unique form of spirituality. Today’s students are challenged to succeed in a challenging world.  Many carry debt and work in part-time or even full-time jobs. Through your financial support we can offer scholarships and bursaries to those who are seeking to serve the Church in their own unique way.
