The Royal Legacy Society recognizes those alumni and friends who have thoughtfully remembered the University through a bequest or another future gift commitment. If you have already remembered Queen’s with a future gift, please contact our Gift Planning Team so that we can appropriately honour your intention. Royal Legacy donors are recognized on our donor wall in the 1923 Reading Room in Douglas Library.

By informing us of your wishes:

  • We will help to ensure that your gift can be accepted by the university and used as you have intended.
  • We can advise you on any special considerations or issues related to your gift plan that may need to be addressed so that your gift is eligible for a charitable tax receipt.
  • Most importantly, joining the RoyalLegacy Society allows us to thank you and celebrate your generous gift plans for Queen’s.

As a member of the Royal Legacy Society, you are recognized for making a gift that will reach beyond your lifetime. As a thank you, you will receive: 

  • A certificate of appreciation signed by the Principal and Vice-Chancellor
  • Invitations to special campus and regional events
  • Financial planning newsletters and publications
  • Recognition as a benefactor inQueen’spublications and on displays, with your permission
