Endowment Gifts


Endowment gifts deliver a strong financial foundation for the University. By investing these gifts, and only spending a portion of the income earned, they provide steady, reliable funding for student awards, professorships, fellowships, teaching programs and research, year after year.


Student support

Establishing an endowment

You can establish an endowment fund to support an area you care about, and name it after yourself, or in honour or in memory of someone special.

How it works

Reporting on endowments

Each year, Waterloo provides a summary report of each named endowment fund. The report also includes financial details for Waterloo’s endowment performance and management as a whole.
