Giving to Augustana

Types of Giving

Our Development team would love to hear from you! Please contact us at 780.679.1558 or toll-free at 1.800.590.9992 to discuss your giving options and philanthropic goals.

Cash, cheque, or credit card gifts

Cash gifts are usually fully deductible for donors and make a difference instantly as Augustana can immediately utilize them.

In Memoriam & In Honour Giving

Memorial contributions are often a comforting way to pay tribute to the memory of a friend, associate, or loved one who has passed away.


Many donors choose to establish or contribute to an endowment fund, creating a lasting legacy. The income from the endowment provides ongoing support to the donor's chosen priority.

Bequests & Wills

You can choose to leave some or all of your estate to the U of A. This could include cash, investments, property, real estate, or other assets of your estate.

Insurance Policies

Insurance policies enable you to make a significant, lasting gift to the U of A with a minimal outlay of current savings or income.

Real Estate

Gifts of real estate and land includes residential and commercial real estate, developed and undeveloped land, and farmland. Such gifts may be used to either enhance current programs or, alternatively, may be converted to cash proceeds to be used to fund your preferred university activity.

Personal Property

Do you have a valuable collection of books and memorabilia? Are you able to donate equipment or other supplies that the university could use? If so, you could make a non-monetary donation or “gift-in-kind.”

Staff Giving

Gifts from our campus community make a real impact!

Shares & Securities

You can gift shares from your privately-held company. You can also donate securities in the form of stocks, bonds, mutual funds, warrants, and options.
