We are very grateful to have alumni and friends who are inspired to make a difference by making a gift to the Muslim Societies, Global Perspectives initiative at Queen's. This support is instrumental in upholding our long-standing tradition of excellence.
Queen's is well known to deliver an outstanding university experience, both inside and outside the classroom, and the Muslim Societies, Global Perspectives initiative aims to enhance that experience here. Our vision is ambitious and bold: to eventually establish one of Canada's best centres for inter-disciplinary study of Islam and Muslim experiences globally.
With your support we will hold lecture series and public talks; teach-ins and establish dialogue courses; host conferences; award scholarships and post-doctoral fellowships; recruit new faculty; and inform and educate the public.
We are happy to help you explore how you can give back to Queen's and answer any questions. Or, you can make a gift online at your convenience by visiting the Give to Queen's Muslim Societies, Global Perspectives Fund page or by selecting the Give Now button below.
We are also pleased, where possible, to set up a personal visit to discuss specific projects or ways you can support the program, either now or in the future.
Every gift makes an impact. Thank you for your consideration.
