An updated suite of fundraising policies complements the new Support UWindsor website launched by the Alumni Relations and Advancement Office.
Following months of consultation with stakeholder groups and identifying emerging trends and best practices in fundraising, the updated suite includes policies on:
- campaign and fundraising priority setting;
- cash handling;
- gift acceptance;
- naming of University assets; and
The suite also includes a Donor Bill of Rights which further solidifies the relationship and support of donors and ensures that they have full confidence in the philanthropic efforts of the University.
“The launch of the policy suite and the Support UWindsor website reflects improved governance and promotes the continued ethical conduct and accountability of our philanthropic activity,” says Gemma Grey-Hall, acting director, advancement. “Further, the policy suite ensures consistency in the application, co-ordination and management of fundraising activities across administrative units on campus.”
Highlights of the Support UWindsor website include an overview of student, campus, and community fundraising priorities; details of current fundraising capital campaigns; a series of UWindsor donor impact stories; and a central donation page. All fundraising policies can also be found on the site.
