The Laurel Society


Established in 1998, the Laurel Society honours individuals who indicate they are making a planned or deferred gift such as a bequest from your estate, a life insurance policy, a charitable gift annuity, or a charitable remainder trust, to the University of Waterloo. 

Your bequests and other gifts for the future can:

  • endow new scholarships to recognize the academic excellence of future Waterloo students

  • provide funds for special projects within the faculties and schools

  • provide critical resources for the highest priorities of a department faculty or university college

Society member benefits

  • receive updates on achievements and activities, through communications and special events
  • opportunities to meet with other leading supporters  at special events
  • special access to select campus facilities and services
  • the satisfaction of helping to ensure the continued excellence of the university
