Planned Gifts: Enhancing the experiences of future generations
Through planned giving, you can achieve philanthropic objectives while minimizing tax implications and maximizing other financial benefits.
Many individuals support Queen's University generously throughout their lifetimes. That relationship can be continued in perpetuity by a bequest or other gift that is endowed in the donor's name, the family name, or in honour of a friend or loved one.
Planned gifts can be expressed through various funding channels:
- charitable remainder trusts
- gifts of property or goods (gifts in kind)
- gifts of registered retirement funds (RRSPs and RRIFs)
- gifts of stocks and securities
- charitable life insurance

Matching Gifts: Your employer might double your gift
What is a matching gift? In companies that offer matching gift programs, when an employee makes a personal donation to a charitable organization on the company's list, the company will also make a gift to that same organization.
Check our Matching Gift Database to see if your company is registered with Queen's as a "matching gift company" or inquire with your employer's Human Resources department.
If you discover that your company has a matching gift program, simply complete a matching gift claim form and mail it to us along with your donation!

Endowed gifts never stop giving. With an endowment, your original gift is invested and managed in perpetuity by Queen’s University as part of a pooled fund, and the annual interest on it is allocated to the area of your choice.
