Memorial and tribute giving

A lasting way to remember or honour someone special, is by making an investment in Waterloo's future with a one-time donation or by creating a memorial fund to support a scholarship, bursary or priority project.

Once your gift is received, we will let the family know you have made a donation or created a fund in their loved one's name.

To make your one-time gift, you can use our secure online gift form

Alternatively, you can make a memorial or tribute gift in the form of a tree, bench or rock to honour and remember those close to Waterloo, while enhancing the campus landscape.

The chart below represents donation requirements for typical memorials and tributes:

Memorial and Tribute Required Donation
Tree including plaque and post  $1,000
Bench including plaque and pad $2,000
Rock and plaque*


*a variety of rocks are available
