Meet Our Donors

Making a difference

We are so thankful to our parents, alumni, faculty and staff, grandparents, past parents and friends who choose to support Upper Canada College on an annual basis. Each of them has their own story about why they give and what they support. We're extremely proud of all our generous donors.

  • Brian Berghuis '77

    "I was a frequent participant on Bruce Littlejohn's weekend trips to Norval in the late '60s and early '70s, and I loved planting trees, learning to camp, and the camaraderie with others. But the more lasting legacy has been a lifetime appreciation of the environment and its inherent fragility."
  • Albina and Henry Linhares-Huang

    "We value and support UCC's financial assistance program. Having depth and breadth in the student body doesn't just reflect best practices at leading educational institutions around the world - it's also simply the right thing to do!"
  • Maggie Mok

    "I'm very excited to support the Hixon Family Design Lab. Technology and design concepts are seamlessly integrating into every aspect of our lives, and this amazing new space will give Prep students more chances to learn experientially and put these concepts into practice."
  • Colleen Papulkas

    "I'm proud to donate to Horizons, which has been providing invaluable learning opportunities to TDSB participants and UCC boys alike for more than two decades."
