Making a donation
Making a donation to any charity is a personal choice, and we are happy to work with you to ensure that your donation is directed to an area that is important to you and makes a difference to the people who work and study at the University of Saskatchewan.
Your donation, combined with donations from other alumni and friends, can have a great impact. For example, the average donation to the Centennial Fund is $241, but collectively, those gifts awarded $67,000 to 26 new and continuing students in 2016-17.
Thinking of something more specific or a larger donation? Contact a member of our fundraising team or call (306) 966-1907 and we’d be happy to talk to you about how your gift can meet your philanthropic goals.
Yes! When making a pledge, our office records your payment schedule according to your wishes. We send payment reminders before your scheduled payment is due. If we don't hear from you within 60 days we will send out a follow-up reminder. After 120 days, we will assume you would like your pledge deactivated. Please note that pledges can be reactivated at any time. Please contact us if you have questions about your donation.
