University of Windsor Campus

Gifts, Endowments and Trusts

Please be advised due to system issues, our online donations website is currently unavailable and tax receipts cannot be generated at this time.  Our ITS group is working to restore the services as quickly as possible.  We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and appreciate your patience. 

Although our current donations site is undergoing maintenance, we are pleased to offer an alternative electronic solution via email money transfer to donations@uwindsor.ca to accept online donations.  Donors are asked to put a description of the initiative or fund they are donating to in the memo line of the e-transfer such that the University may allocate the donation to the desired initiative.  We thank you for your support and generosity to our students, research and infrastructure investments.

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.
