You can direct your gift to the place at Queen's that means most to you. This could include the faculty or school from which you graduated, the department you studied through, the athletic team you competed on, or the club you participated in. We also encourage donors to consider the Queen's Fund
Gifts to the Queen's Fund are used to fund the most urgent, on-going needs of the University - such as student assistance, technology upgrades, student services and library acquisitions. Undesignated funds give the University the flexibility to respond to unanticipated needs and to seize unexpected opportunities throughout the year.
Queen's employs more than 50 energetic students to call alumni throughout the year. Current students enjoy the chance to hear the stories of alumni, and many alumni are interested to hear about the Queen's experience today.
We realize that giving decisions are personal. All gifts to the University are greatly appreciated!
You sure can! Queen's would be pleased to accept a gift with payments spread out up to 5 years in monthly or quarterly payments. Many donors find that giving monthly better fits their budgets. This reliable source of support also allows us to carefully and strategically plan moving forward.
Yes, you will. Gift receipts are mailed (or emailed as a PDF if you choose to make your gift online) 3-5 days after we have processed your gift. Monthly gift installments will be receipted at year-end and mailed out in February.
