McMaster receives $1.25M to benefit children, families

October 25, 2016

McMaster University is set to better support thousands of young people and their families thanks to a $1.25M gift and matching program from the Joyce Family Foundation to McMaster Children & Youth University. Launched in 2011, the initiative is the first children’s university in Canada with programming for “interactive, family-based discovery.” The Joyce Family Foundation’s gift will help support and expand the initiative, along with a gift matching program that doubles any commitment of support to the Children & Youth University. “This wonderful gift from the Joyce Family Foundation continues its impactful philanthropic legacy at McMaster, and once again directly benefits the young people in our community,” said McMaster President Patrick Deane. “We are deeply appreciative of this generous support.” McMaster
