Bequests & Planned gifts

Just as Huron may have significantly influenced your life, you have the opportunity to leave a legacy as you shape the future of Huron, its students and programs through careful financial planning.

Many individuals have helped Huron maintain its special character by making a planned gift, such as leaving a bequest in their will or designating Huron as the beneficiary of a life insurance policy. In addition to ensuring the long-term financial strength of Huron, donors of a planned gift also benefit from significant tax advantages.

Gift of Securities Information
Gift of Securities Form


Many alumni and friends make gifts to Huron in the form of a named donor fund to benefit an area of Huron life which has particular meaning for them.  An endowment is “the gift that keeps on giving,” benefiting Huron students now and generations of Huron students to come.

The endowment fund will be invested and an annual payout expended in accordance with the established policies of the Huron University Foundation.  Put simply, an endowment is a capital fund which the donor establishes that resides in the Huron University Foundation.

Each year, a percentage of one’s total fund (currently 4% of the five-year rolling average) is paid out towards the area of Huron which the donor chooses to support.  An endowment of $15,000 provides approximately $600 each year.  Investment growth and any additional donations increase the value of the fund, and in turn the financial support provided from the endowment each year.

Endowments can be designated to support an area of the Huron experience which has particular meaning to the donor.

In addition, many donors arrange for a planned gift such as a bequest in one’s will which can be directed to the named fund they establish.

Recurring gifts and pledges

Your gift to Huron may be matched by your employer! Many employers match charitable gifts and gift matching is an arrangement through when an employee makes a financial gift to Huron, the gift is ‘matched’ by the employer.

If your company is eligible, request a matching gift form from your employer, and send it completed and signed with your gift.  Huron will do the rest.  The impact of your gift to Huron may be doubled or possibly tripled.  Some companies match gifts made by retirees and/or spouses.

Not sure if your company matches gifts? Ask us.


Join your classmates in honouring what you love about Huron. Now is your chance to pay tribute to that professor, class, or student activity that impacted your time at Huron.

Current and future generations of students are the beneficiaries of class gifts, many of which continue to build over the years, thanks to your enduring collective commitment.

Recognize your Class of 2019 Graduate

Graduating from university is a big deal. Graduates’ parents have the opportunity to recognize their child’s achievements by making a donation in their child’s honour.

Giving is a powerful way for alumni to give back collectively to Huron in recognition of a milestone graduation anniversary, thereby creating a meaningful class legacy. Without the generous support from students and alumni, many of our programs, scholarships and upgrades would not be possible.



Priority Projects

Huron University Foundation U.S.A
Huron Alumni USA Scholarship Fund
Gifts from the USA

In recognition of the increasing number of alumni in the US, Huron has now acquired 501c 3 status in the US through the formation of the Huron University Foundation USA for alumni who wish to make donations to support Huron.   This makes contributions to Huron that much more attractive for many alumni.  Under the Canada – U.S .Tax Treaty, Huron may issue tax receipts directly which qualify for tax credit with the IRS, while some alumni prefer to do so through a 501 c 3 status organization, which we now have in place.

The Huron University Foundation USA also provides opportunities for corporations to receive tax credit for gifts to Huron.  Thus, alumni who choose to ask the companies for whom they work to make matching gifts to Huron can do so knowing that their company will receive tax credit.


Established in 2014 through donations from US-based alumni of Huron University, and principally by the Directors of the Huron University Foundation U.S.A., the Huron Alumni USA Scholarship is awarded to an incoming first-year student from the USA registered full-time at Huron.


Huron alumni and friends living in the USA can support Huron and receive a charitable tax receipt. Under the Canada – U.S.Tax Treaty and through a 501 c 3 status organization, Huron may issue tax receipts which qualify for tax credit with the IRS.

How you can make a gift:

  • Make a gift in US dollars online.
  • Send a cheque payable to Huron University Foundation U.S.A. or mail your credit card pledge in US dollars to:

Huron University
1349 Western Road, London, Ontario
N6G 1H3 Canada

  • You can also continue donating in Canadian dollars, even if you reside in the USA.
