New Website Launched

The board of the McGannon Foundation met in Toronto on February 7 and 8, 2019 to set the strategy for the upcoming year. One of the items discussed at the meeting was a refresh of our website to make it more accessible to students, alumni and donors.

One of the key new features of the website (currently in beta testing) is the ability for students to apply for undergraduate and graduate scholarships and positions within the Student Involvement Program online.
