Supporting students directly is one of the most meaningful and memorable ways to give. One hundred percent of your gift will be given to one or more students that meet the criteria you’ve established.
Establishing a Student Award
Awards can be established and given out on an annual basis as long as the donor continues to give, or in perpetuity through the creation of an endowment fund. Donations to awards can be given through the traditional giving channels—through cheque or credit card, a gift of stock or bonds, or through a bequest in a will.
Annual awards require a minimum commitment of $500 per year for three years. The award is given out as long as the donor continues to support it. As with all awards, you as the donor are permitted to identify criteria that the student must satisfy in order to be eligible. For example, you can stipulate that the recipient must be a full-time student in the Master of Social Work program.
Establishing an endowment fund requires a minimum commitment of $12,500. The money is invested and professionally managed, generating a 4% return each year. The $500 in interest revenue is then given out to a student annually and the award continues in perpetuity. This is a legacy that will have a significant impact on a student’s future.
