Ways to Give
There are many ways to give to the University of Ottawa. Whether it is a one-time or monthly gift, an annual gift, a corporate gift or a gift for tomorrow, we can help you find a way to make a difference for our students.
Your donations strengthen every single area of the University of Ottawa, including teaching and research, infrastructure, student programs, scholarships and the overall student experience.
You can donate online by Visa or MasterCard, through automatic bank withdrawal, by mail, over the phone, or, if you are a uOttawa employee or retiree, via payroll or pension deductions.
You can direct your gift — of any size — to the faculty, service or project of your choice. Whether it’s a one-time or monthly gift, your donation makes an impact and helps the University continue to provide our students with experiences that launch a lifetime of success.
We provide ready access to expert faculty and staff, state-of-the-art facilities and opportunities to get involved with philanthropic activities that have a lasting impact.
Make your gift go even further by making it part of a matching gifts program. Employer matching gift programs allow employees and corporations to unite and enhance their charitable giving.
Gift of securities
Donate securities directly to the University to avoid paying the capital gains tax on your investments.
The University’s annual Employee Giving program seeks to engage faculty, support staff and retirees in support of research and student-focused initiatives.
Gifts-in-kind are gifts of property other than cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities. Please note that gifts-in-kind are accepted at the discretion of the University of Ottawa.
