Ways to Give

Students eating

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.

Individual giving

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.
