Ways to give

Support UVic your way

There are so many ways to support UVic and our students.

You can create a student award or bursary; support a particular faculty, department or project; honour someone who means a lot to you; or leave a gift in your will. Each and every gift, no matter how large or small, makes a difference.

We are committed to working with you to find the donation options which best suit your financial and philanthropic goals.

Make a Matching Gift

If your employer (or your spouse's employer) have a matching gift program, you can ask your company to match your support for UVic. You can augument the value of your donation by a matching gift.

Give Securities

A donation of publicly listed securities - stocks, bonds, mutual fund units or shares - benefits the university in the same way as a gift of cash and can be directed to any fund. For the donor, a gift of securities may result in considerable tax benefits. Please consult the fact sheet for information on how to transfer shares to the university. Please contact Deborah Walker at  or 250-721-8967 for more information.

Give Through Your Will or Estate

A legacy gift is a charitable donation that can be set up during your lifetime but won't become available to the University until sometime in the future.  These future gifts can come in many forms and many of them provide tax benefits now.  For more information, please visit  “Legacy Giving” page.

Give Personal Property

If you wish to donate non-cash assets to the University of Victoria, either during your lifetime or through your estate, we can provide guidance.  These donations, also called gifts-in-kind, may include works of art, books, rare objects, equipment, or real estate. Please contact Deborah Walker at  or 250-721-8967 for more information.
