Here’s what your donation can do

The University of Toronto has a resolute commitment to equal opportunity, equity and justice, and we are fortunate to be able to fulfill that commitment in a variety of ways.


As the VP of Research and Innovation, and Strategic Initiatives, I am delighted that our entrepreneurship community is Canada’s leading engine for research-based startups. Among them, Lead with Dignity aims to alleviate homelessness, mental health and other related issues in Ontario and abroad by offering employment support and micro-lending strategies.

That our University community produces new, solution-focused companies that share our values and do powerful work toward our social goals is a source of immense pride. I am also proud that we also stand up each year and give generously to United Way.

I’d like to invite you to join me in donating again in 2019, so that we may have a profound impact on our communities and change many more lives for the better.

Donations can be made here until December 31st.

If you have any questions about the Campaign, please contact the U of T United Way team at

With gratitude,

Vivek Goel
Vice President, Research and Innovation, and Strategic Initiatives
