1. What if I don't want to be publicly recognized for my gift(s)?

We are proud to recognize the generosity of our donors through published donor lists (in print and online) and donor recognition events. When donors notify us that they choose not to be publicly recognized for their support, we can easily accommodate the request. If you choose (a) not to have your name published with regard to a specific gift; (b) not to have your name published with regard to all gifts, or (c) not to be invited to donor recognition events, please contact the University Advancment Office at (306) 966-5186, or toll free 1-800-699-1907, or email us at giving@usask.ca.

2. Are there occasions when the University may choose to decline a gift?

While the University accepts a wide array of gifts (both cash and in-kind), the University's Board of Governors ultimately reserves the right to accept or decline any gift. The Board's primary interest is to ensure that all gifts are receipted according to Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) regulations and guidelines and that the University can adequately and appropriately serve the donor's intent. If you have a question about the nature or designation of your gift, please please call us at (306) 966-5186, toll-free 1-800-699-1907, or email us at giving@usask.ca.

3. Will I still receive a tax receipt if I choose to remain anonymous?

We track anonymity as it relates to the University's public recognition of donors. Anonymous donors must provide personal information for tax purposes, but that information will remain confidential within the University Advancement Office. In all University and public announcements, the gift(s) will be kept 'anonymous' if requested by the donor.
