We are committed to working with you to ensure that your support meets your philanthropic goals. We recognise the importance of thanking and appropriately acknowledging the contributions of our donors and supporters.
Depending on the amount of your donation, this may take the form of:
Personal acknowledgement of your support
- invitations to exclusive gatherings with senior leaders of the university, relevant faculty members and other leadership supporters of the university
Public recognition of your support
- acknowledgement at special events
- naming opportunities for student support (scholarships, bursaries and awards), faculty support (fellowships, professorships and chairs), facilities, or student life
- Recognition through Waterloo's print and online communications
Donations to registered charities qualify for both federal and provincial income tax credits, thereby reducing your personal income tax payable.
Circle and Society membership benefits
To honour the exceptional commitment of our donors, the University has created special recognition circles and societies.
