Individual Support

Individual philanthropic support comes in the form of annual, major and planned gifts and donors receive a charitable gift receipt to reduce income tax payable. Beyond outright gifts, other options include gifts of securities listed on the stock exchange (reduce what you’ll owe at tax time on capital gains) or life insurance with uOttawa as beneficiary (a great way for young alumni to plan now to support us in the future by locking in a low premium and the premiums you pay count as a charitable gift.) Be sure to check if your employer matches gifts so you or your spouse can double your impact for free!

To be directed to a member of the Development team, please contact Sheetal Gandhi.
