Giving to MacEwan University means investing in students, enhancing the student experience and making an impact on the next generation.

A monthly commitment provides an ongoing, stable source of funding that allows for future planning. Set up a monthly donation and join our community of ongoing donors.

Supporting MacEwan University and our students can be a fitting way to honour or pay tribute to a special friend or loved one.

Honour gifts

Whether it is for someone’s birthday, retirement, anniversary or any special celebration, you can dedicate a gift to make that person's day extra special.

Memorial gifts

Memorial contributions are a meaningful way to pay tribute to the memory of a friend or loved one who has passed away. The next-of-kin receives a card from our office letting them know of your kind gift and all gifts received.

Planned giving describes a number of choices you have to create a charitable gift now that comes into effect after your death. Planned gifts can be established without affecting your current financial circumstances and often involve the use of financial and legal tools such as wills, life insurance policies, endowments, trusts and even gifts of property, stocks and securities. It's "planned" because it takes some thought and preparation.

Why consider a planned gift?

A planned gift allows you to support MacEwan University students and programs in a way that you might not be able to afford during your lifetime. Your legacy empowers our students and allows us to plan for their future.

A MacEwan fund development representative would be happy to speak with you about planned giving.
