Make an impact

Help give students the educational experience they deserve

At OISE, we believe that one of the most powerful weapons in the fight against racism is education. That is why we are launching the OISE Black Excellence Education Initiative.

Funds from the initiative will help remove financial barriers to success for Black students at OISE and support students conducting anti-Black racism research. Every dollar donated to the fund to a maximum of $25,000 will be matched by OISE.
