A Donor's Story

Inspired alum makes the gift of a lifetime.

Giving through the OISE annual fund is just one way alumni can help transform the lives of students. Alumnus Dr. Henderson (J. Glenn) Scott chose to create one such gift through his estate.

OISE has been Scott’s “intellectual and professional home” for more than 40 years. By 1965, he had completed his BEd, MEd and EdD in education theory at U of T, followed by appointments as a faculty member and administrator at the then newly established OISE. 

To recognize the positive impact the Institute and its faculty had on shaping his academic career, Scott made a legacy gift, which established The George Flower Award for Advanced Studies in Education. Dr. George Flower was OISE's director of graduate studies during his time as a graduate student.

“I was extremely privileged both to study under the supervision of George Flower and to be his colleague in teaching and administration during OISE’s formative years,” said Scott. “This is a most gratifying and nurturing way to recognize a positive influence in one’s life.”

Dr. Scott’s story is just one of many that show how anyone planning ahead can have an extraordinary impact on the future.

Thanks to generous donors like Dr. Scott who have made a gift through their estate plans, countless life-changing opportunities have been created for OISE students, researchers and faculty members. 

Make a gift.
