A lasting tribute to your generosity

The University of Toronto recognizes our most generous benefactors by engraving your names on the stone installation in Simcoe Hall—the historic centre of the University. At the next opportunity, we will add the name of the Edwards Charitable Foundation.

Each donor joins their peers on the installation chronologically, after fulfilling $5 million or more in giving.
