How To Give

It takes 2 easy steps to make a donation.

  1. Choose the fund you would like donate to. You can choose between our Designated Funds or our Non-Desigated Funds. For a list of bursaries and critera for admissibility, please see (French only).
  2. Choose a payment method. Consult the page Make a Donation to learn more.


Unsure which fund to donate to? Donate to the Fonds de bourses général which supports the bursaries program, or give to the Fonds des priorités émergentes, a fund that supports capital projects linked to the university strategic plan.

Create a Fund

You can also choose to create your own fund to donate to, which can either be a Family Fund or a Designated Fund. The name of the fund is also of your choosing.

Non-Designated Fund

A Non-Designated Fund consists of capital donated by its founder and the interest that is generated. A minimum contribution of $1000 is all that is required to set up a Family Fund. The founder commits to making sure that contributions reach a minimum of $5,000 no later than 5 years after the fund has been set up.

Starting after the first year, a percentage of revenues will be distributed to students as annual awards, most of them in the fall.

Once the fund reaches the sum of $25,000, discounting all financial matching, the creator of the fund may designate to which purpose the generated interest will go. The Fund is then newly categorized as a Designated Fund.

Designated Fund

The creation of a Designated Fund requires a minimum start up donation of $25,000 $. With the help of the Development Office, the creator will establish the criteria for distribution of bursaries to the student population, or for other causes such as research or cultural activities.

Other Types of Donations

Be creative and make a donation in kind or a donation to the Fonds des priorités émergentes.

Or, if you would like to see an immediate result, make an immediate impact donation that will see your donation go towards the cause of your choosing. Learn more...
