Ways to Give

When you give to MacEwan University, you can choose how to donate, when to donate and where you'd like your donation directed. Talk to us about your vision and we will help make it happen.


One-time gifts

Your one-time donation, no matter how big or small, makes a difference for our students.

Planned giving

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.

Tribute gifts

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 often a comforting way to pay tribute to the memory of a friend or loved one who has passed away. Family and friends may contribute to the memorial gift, with charitable tax receipts issued in each donor’s name. The next-of-kin receive a card from our office letting them know of your kind gift and all gifts received.
