University of Windsor Campus

Gifts, Endowments and Trusts

Gift and Donor Data Information System

The University of Windsor uses a Blackbaud tool (Raiser’s Edge v. 7) for donor data.  Raiser’s Edge, version 7 is locally hosted, and is not cloud based.  The University of Windsor was not impacted by the recent data breach at Blackbaud that impacted cloud-based clients.

Mission & Vision

The Gift and Pledge Processing area within FAR supports the University’s mission by processing and accounting the generous gifts and pledges provided by our alumni and friends.


Gifts of Securities

It is our pleasure to receive gifts of shares and other investment products from our alumni and friends. When gifts of investments are received, it is our policy to sell them as soon as administratively possible. The University’s protocol for gifts of securities is outlined in the Protocol for Donations of Shares document. We request that Major Gift Officers and others facilitating these gifts on campus complete the Securities Transfer Form to ensure they are processed expediently.


Gifts in Kind

The University appreciates gifts of goods to Departments. Should a donor wish to receive a donation receipt for their gift of goods, we ask that the Request for Donation Receipt for Gift in Kind form be completed.


Endowment and Trust Accounts

Campus community members who wish to open and Endowment or Trust are requested to complete the Application to open a Trust Account Form.


Donations must be accompanied by the Information for Incoming Donations Form 
Please view our Gift Acceptance Policy.
