Why Donate to Seneca?

Priority number one at Seneca is to provide students with a great educational experience, which will give them a strong foundation for ongoing academic and career success.

To do so, we need to keep our students in the classroom. For many, economic hardship makes this easier said than done.

The numbers don’t lie:

  • More than 50 per cent of our students have to borrow money to pay for school;
  • Nearly half of those who leave Seneca before completing their programs cite financial difficulties as the reason;
  • Four out of five of our full-time students work, and many are working more than 20 hours a week.

Your support of Seneca students can lessen the financial burdens they face. It could also change the life of one of our future leaders. As one Seneca faculty member put it: “Each year, we lose students: not because they are not motivated or ill-suited to their chosen field of study, but because they simply cannot afford to continue their studies. These are the students we need to support and champion.”

You can support Seneca students in countless ways: donations, volunteerism, sponsorships, gifts-in-kind or legacy gifts. Contact one of our Senior Development Officers to make an impactful difference.
