Donor Impact

Student Emergency Funding

Donate today to The Leslie Dan Faculty of Pharmacy’s - Shaping Student Life and Learning Fund (SSLL) to support our students facing financial challenges due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Without this funding, myself and many others would have had to make challenging decisions during these times of uncertainty. I was hoping to attend a conference, however, once the pandemic had reached a certain level, my priorities and attention had shifted to keeping myself and those around me safe. Without your help I would not have been able to meet these priorities. Thank you for contributing to the Shaping Student Life and Learning Fund.

—Rajveer Gohil, PharmD Student
On behalf of graduate students I would like to thank donors for their support during the COVID-19 pandemic. This has been a challenging time for many students in Canada including those at our faculty. The SSLL funding supports students who in turn improve research quality and we hope to successfully combat this disease together.

—Jasmine Carter, PhD Student and President, Pharmaceutical Sciences Graduate Student Association

Thanks to the support of our generous donors, we have provided over $100,000 in emergency COVID-19-related funding to support students in both our professional and graduate studies programs.
