Donate Today

A donation in support of the Loran Scholars Foundation is an investment in the long-term potential of values-driven students with a guiding sense of purpose, the capacity to collaborate to drive change, an enthusiasm to grow by pushing their limits, and the potential to serve and lead with integrity.

By donating today and investing in their excellence, you will launch Loran Scholars on a trajectory of inspiration and growth as future leaders, thereby developing a diverse ecosystem of leaders who accept the challenge of building a better world.

Ways to

  • Online

    The easiest way to support the Loran Scholars Foundation is to donate securely online. Tax receipts for online donations are issued the day that you make your donation.

  • Monthly giving

    Some donors prefer to establish pre-authorized monthly donations rather than making an annual donation to the Loran Scholars Foundation. A single cumulative tax receipt is issued in January for monthly donations made in the previous taxation year.

  • Cheque

    If you would prefer to donate by cheque, please make your donation payable to the Loran Scholars Foundation and mail it to:
    Loran Scholars Foundation
    42 Bell Manor Drive
    Etobicoke, ON M8Y 0A4

  • Wire Transfer and E-Transfer

    Please contact Lily Manea, Director of Operations, directly
    at 416.646.2120 x 223 or

  • US-based donors

    If you would like a US tax receipt, you may prefer to donate to Friends of Canadian Education, a 501(c)(3) charitable organization.

  • Donor-advised funds (DAFs)

    A convenient and tax-efficient way to manage charitable giving, allowing donors to maximize the impact of their contributions. Consider growing your investment in our mission by recommending a grant from your DAF today. We are happy to work with your DAF administrator to facilitate your giving. If you have any questions or need assistance, please feel free to e-mail us at

  • Aeroplan Points

    Since we pay part of the costs for finalists to travel from their hometowns throughout Canada to Toronto for national interviews, we greatly appreciate donations of Aeroplan Points to mitigate the cost of flights. In generous sponsorship of our mission, Aeroplan presently matches up to 500,000 points per year. Donate miles here.

  • Publicly listed securities

    Some donors prefer to donate publicly listed securities that have appreciated in value. The May 2006 federal budget made such in-kind donations of listed securities advantageous in terms of tax savings by exempting the capital gains from tax. If you are interested in donating publicly listed securities, please call Lily Manea at 416.646.2120 x223. To expedite these types of transactions, we encourage donors to use our donation of securities form.

  • Endowment giving

    If you would like to contribute to our endowment fund, please let us know when you donate in any of the above ways. A contribution to the endowment fund must be at least $10,000. For more information, contact Meghan Moore at or 416.646.2120 x222.

“We need strong, dedicated, and creative leadership to achieve positive outcomes. As Loran Scholars, young Canadians have the opportunity to learn, take meaningful risks, and determine how they can best contribute to society. By looking at their character, willingness to learn from failure, and genuine aspirations, Loran is able to discover young people with tremendous potential for a life of leadership and service.”

– John and Marcy McCall MacBain
