A Generous Contribution Establishing the Lassonde Institute of Mining
Over the past 20 years, Pierre Lassonde has pledged more than $10 million in philanthropic support to Mining at the University of Toronto. His extraordinary donation allowed for the establishment of the Lassonde Institute of Mining in 2000. In addition, the Lassonde family's support for endowed chairs and infrastructure capital ensures the long-term success of the Institute and enhances its role as in innovative research and training.
Pierre Lassonde initially gave $4 million in 1996 to the Department of Civil and Mineral Engineering at the University of Toronto, to establish the Lassonde Mineral Engineering undergraduate program as well as endowed professorial chairs, the Claudette Mackay-Lassonde chair in Mineral Engineering and the Lassonde Chair in Mining Engineering. In 2010, Pierre Lassonde pledged an additional $3.5 million investment to renovate UofT Mining facilities.
