Windsor Gives logoToday marks the start of the faculty-staff fundraising campaign in support of the Annual Giving Program.

Seat sponsorship focus of Giving Tuesday effort

Today is Giving Tuesday. Join the greater UWindsor community and make a donation now to support students — the Annual Giving Program fundraising campaign kicks off today, says co-ordinator Chris Knack.

The focus of Giving Tuesday this year is Take a Seat. For a donation of $1,000 per seat to the Lancer Centre, you can sponsor a spectator seat in the new triple gym, future home of Lancer athletics and convocation ceremonies. Choose one and personalize it to be part of Lancer history in perpetuity. The Lancer Centre will be completed in May 2022.

Donations are tax deductible and can be made in honour of:

  • an individual, couple, or family;
  • children, grandchildren, or parents;
  • the memory of a loved one; or
  • an accomplishment or celebration.

Donors may pledge over two years and pay by credit card or through payroll deduction. Make a donation or learn more about Take a Seat. Watch a short video on Take a Seat.

“The campaign recognizes the importance of supporting UWindsor students,” says Knack. “The impact of your gift is felt directly by our students, as 100 per cent of your donation goes directly to the designation you select: any faculty, program or scholarship fund.”

He reminds faculty and staff that employees who contribute to the Annual Giving Program will be entered into a draw to win an extra vacation day. Learn more and make a donation at
