Queen's University

Meet our Gift Planning Advisory Committee

Queen’s University’s Gift Planning Advisory Committee is an operational committee of the Office of Advancement created to provide guidance and support for the University’s gift planning endeavours and to act as advocates for the program. Volunteer committee members are Queen’s alumni and donors who are appointed based on their estate, trust, tax, insurance and financial planning expertise. They are recognized nationally as leaders in their respective fields of practice. Members generously share their time and expertise to help Queen’s staff ensure that readers of the Financial Planner and other potential donors receive helpful information.
