Is my donation tax-deductible?

Yes, the Yukon University Foundation is a charitable organization so your donation entitles you to a tax benefit. You can calculate the benefits of making a donation by using the charitable donation tax credit calculator provided by the Canada Revenue Agency.

Can I direct my gift towards a particular department or program? Can I be sure my donation will go there?

Yes, you can designate that your donation be directed to a specific area of interest. You can select from the funding priorities identified by YukonU staff and students, or contact us to discuss your idea.

All charitable organizations have a legal obligation to ensure that every gift is used for the purpose specified by the donor. If for any reason a gift cannot be used for its original purpose, we will make every effort to ensure that the donor is notified and alternative arrangements are discussed.

Why become a monthly donor?

For the Foundation, monthly donations allow us to plan for the future. For you, the donor, monthly donations are convenient and can add up to a significant contribution over the year. Interested? Start your monthly giving today!

What is a tribute gift?

Tribute gifts are a wonderful way to mark special occasions, or to honour a friend, family member or colleague. Consider making a tribute gift in celebration of a new baby or as an alternative to traditional Christmas, birthday, wedding, anniversary or retirement gifts.

What is a memorial gift?

Often given in lieu of flowers, memorial gifts are a special way to commemorate loved ones who are no longer with us. These gifts enhance education in our community while creating a legacy for your loved ones.

What is a planned gift?

A planned gift is a promise for the future. It is a charitable donation, like a bequest in your will, which can be arranged during your lifetime, but is not available until sometime in the future. By planning your charitable donation, with the aid of a trusted financial advisor, your gift will benefit Yukon University and create tax advantages for your estate.
