Queen's is pleased and proud to celebrate our donors. Gifts to Queen's support the people of Queen's, unleashing the potential of our thinkers and doers. The following list is based upon gifts received in the fiscal year May 1, 2012 to April 30, 2013. While we thank and appreciate all of our donors, including those who choose to remain anonymous, only those in recognition societies are listed here. All others, where applicable, are included in the Faithful Annual Donors and/or Lifetime Circles Members lists.
For Class Giving, the "Total Donations" shown (see the blue bars that appear in the default view, such as for Class of 1939) represent the cumulative contributions of all class members and is included for all classes who had five donors or more within the last fiscal year. Class "Participation Rate" is based on the total number of donors in the class, relative to the total number of living class members.
By default, alumni are listed with their preferred class, and parents, faculty, staff and friends are listed alphabetically.
Donors are welcomed into Annual Appreciation Societies based on their total annual gifts received during the fiscal year (May 1, ending April 30).

If you search for Donors who are Alumni but have no other affiliation to Queen's, the results will be grouped by the Donor's preferred class. Otherwise the results will not be grouped; they will be listed alphabetically by last name, first name.
If you search for Alumni Donors, you have the option of also specifying the Donor's preferred year and school.
Donors may have more than one affiliation (e.g. a Faculty/Staff member who is also a Parent), but Donors who are Friends have no other affiliations.
When you search by name, the First Name, Last Name, and Preferred Name will all be searched.
Donors may not appear if you search for a nickname (such as "Tom" instead of "Thomas"), unless that nickname is the Donor's preferred name.
