Kingstonians are passionate people. And so are Queen’s alumni.
As both a Kingston resident and a Queen’s graduate, you likely feel passionate about many causes. Maybe you’re passionate about ensuring that vital physical and mental health services are available to everyone in our community. Maybe you’re passionate about tearing down barriers and building brighter futures for BIPOC youth, or about ensuring that all of us can retain our health, dignity, and community as we age.
You can support all of these important causes – and give students hands-on learning experiences – with a gift to Queen’s.
