WAYS TO GIVE
There are many different ways to support SFU – from writing a cheque to leaving instructions in your will. However you choose to donate, you can be sure that 100% of your gift will go directly to the fund or program that you designate.
First-Time Donor’s Super Credit
The federal government is encouraging new donors to make a charitable gift, by offering a temporary tax incentive. First-time donors, or those who have not claimed a charitable tax credit since 2007, will be eligible to receive an additional 25% tax credit for any charitable gifts made before 2018.
Charitable Business #118520725 RR0001.
Gifts dated and postmarked on or before December 31 are eligible to receive a tax receipt for that year.
Access our secure online giving form and use your Visa, MasterCard or American Express.
Cheques in support of any fund or endowment may be made payable to "Simon Fraser University" and can be mailed to:
Director of Advancement
Faculty of Science
Technology & Science Complex 2
8888 University Drive, Burnaby, BC V5A 1S6
Check with your employer to see if they have a matching gift program. If they do, this could double your donation to SFU. Simply obtain a "matching gift" form for your company's personnel office, fill it out and enclose it with your donation.
If your organization is interested in establishing a Matching Gift program, please contact us.
Planned gifts are charitable donations that are planned during your lifetime but are usually not available to the University until some time in the future. With a planned gift, you can achieve your philanthropic goal for SFU and ensure that your present and/or future financial and estate planning needs are met.
All of these gifts can have favourable tax consequences for you:
· Life insurance proceeds
· Real estate
· RRSP and RRIF Assets
· Charitable remainder trusts
· Charitable gift annuities
· Books and artifacts
· Art, and other cultural properties
If you are considering a planned gift, please visit SFU Planned Giving or contact us
Simon Fraser University is the first Canadian post-secondary school to accept donations in Bitcoin, a digital currency that can be exchanged electronically.
