May I make an annual appeal gift in honour or in memory of someone?

Any gift, regardless of the size, is important. Your support, at any level, will have an impact.

Can I designate where my donation goes?
Yes. Your gift can be unrestricted, allowing the University the financial flexibility to respond to areas of greatest need, or otherwise directed to any specific areas that need your support. Please see other Giving Opportunities.

What are matching gifts?
Many companies offer matching gift programs that amplify the impact of their employees’ personal contributions without increasing the obligation of the individual donor. Most participating organisations will match employee gifts dollar for dollar, and some will even double or triple a gift. Matching gifts will be directed to the same area of the University as your personal gift. Please consult your human resources department for your organisation’s policy.

What are Unrestricted and Restricted Gifts?
Unrestricted gifts made to the University are used where they're needed most and will have the most immediate impact on student needs. Gifts can be restricted for specific purposes including scholarships, research, and particular Schools and programs. You may restrict the use of your gift by indicating this with a letter attached to your gift or indicating this on your Gift Form.
