IN MEMORY / IN TRIBUTE GIVING
Remember or honour a colleague, friend, or loved-one with an In Memory or In Tribute gift. When you donate In Memory, McMaster will inform the family of your contribution in their loved-one's name. The In Tribute program allows you to recognize a special occasion, such as a birthday, promotion, anniversary, or retirement. Individuals will be sent a card informing them that a gift to McMaster University has been made in their honour.
Many companies and foundations sponsor matching gift programs for their employees’ philanthropic interests. To make a matching gift, please use our secure online giving form. If you are not sure if your employer matches employee gifts, use the following directories to search for your employer on a list of participating companies.
A bequest is a gift directed to McMaster, determined by the donor, and made through a provision in the donor’s will. A bequest gift is eligible for a charitable tax receipt that can be applied to the donor’s final two income tax returns, thereby reducing the overall tax burden on the estate. To make a bequest, contact Paul Grossman, Director, Major & Planned Giving, by phone at 905-525-9140 ext. 23447 or by email at [email protected].
GIFT OF SECURITIES
If you make a gift to McMaster of a publicly listed stock, you will eliminate the taxable portion of your capital gain on the stock that is transferred, and receive a charitable tax receipt for the fair market value of the securities. To make a gift of securities contact Paul Grossman, Director, Major & Planned Giving, by phone at 905-525-9140 ext. 23447 or by email at [email protected].
