Can I donate to a specific project or area at Redeemer?
Yes! Please contact us to share your intentions so that we can ensure your donation is allocated appropriately.
**Please note: Spending of funds is confined to approved programs and projects. Should a donor choose to restrict a contribution for use in an approved program or project, Redeemer will honour that restriction with the understanding that, when the need for such a program or project has been met or cannot be completed for any reason as determined during the current fiscal year, the remaining restricted contributions will be used where most needed in the University in the same year or in a future period.
Does Redeemer share or rent out its mailing or donor lists?
No. All donor information is held in the strictest confidence.
I would like to help a particular student with their finances. What’s the best way to do that?
If you would like to designate your gift toward paying tuition for a specific student, please contact email@example.com. Please note that funds directly paying for an individual’s fees including tuition, residence or other mandatory expenses are not eligible for charitable tax receipts.
Can I make Redeemer the beneficiary of my life insurance policy?
Yes! By doing so, you will receive a charitable receipt for the cash value of the policy and for the premiums you pay.
Can I contribute stocks or shares to Redeemer?
Yes! Gifts of appreciated securities are an excellent way to make a significant donation without incurring tax on capital gains. Your charitable tax receipt is calculated on the value of the shares when they are transferred to a brokerage account, held in Redeemer’s name. The shares are sold immediately to realize a cash donation to Redeemer. Please contact DonorRelations@Redeemer.ca to receive our Transfer Form for your advisor.
I would like to donate an item (such as an art piece) to Redeemer. How do I do this?
