Giving to McMaster

International Donors to McMaster

McMaster University gratefully accepts donations from around the world. In fact, we receive donations from alumni and friends living in nearly 30 different countries on an annual basis! While charitable tax receipts will be issued, they would generally only be eligible for use if you file Income Tax within Canada (exceptions are the instances noted below).

Donors like you have a lasting impact on McMaster researchers, students and our community.
