Give to the College of Education

The gift of education is one of the most important gifts you can give. Your support of the College of Education helps us improve the services, resources and equipment needed to give future educators the best possible start. Looking to the future we know that in order to grow as a College, we require increased resources. Donor support of the College of Education allows us to achieve our goals of:

  • enhancing programming and conducting research
  • establishing community connections and expanding relations with alumni
  • rewarding academic achievement through scholarship and bursary programs
  • expanding our technological resources and facilities

We invite you to join us in creating the future by giving to the College of Education at the University of Saskatchewan.

Planned Giving

Planned giving is a form of charitable giving coordinated with your financial and estate plan, which allows you to accomplish your goal in supporting the University of Saskatchewan while optimizing your tax and other financial benefits.

A planned gift to the University of Saskatchewan can take many different forms:

  • a bequest through a will
  • a gift of life insurance
  • RRSP's, RRIF's, pension and annuities
  • Gifts in Kind
  • Gifts of property
  • Gifts of stock and securities

A planned gift may be outright, providing resources for immediate use, or it may be deferred, planned now for completion at a future time.

With the assistance of the University of Saskatchewan's Planned Office and your own advisors, you can craft a planned gift to the College of Education that will support the College's pressing needs while satisfying your personal financial wishes.
