Corporate and Foundation Giving

The University of Windsor is proud of the relationships that have been built with our many corporate and foundation partners.  These partnerships are integral to creating a student experience that moves our campus and community forward.  There are many ways we can work together to maximize the impact of corporate and foundation contributions while identifying opportunities that fit your strategic giving priorities.  Strategic giving opportunities include:

Naming Rights: There are many ways to highlight your organization’s commitment to the University of Windsor.  By supporting our physical campus, you leave a mark of that commitment to be recognized by our students and community.  Examples include your organization’s name on classrooms, buildings and laboratory spaces.

Scholarships and Fellowships: Every person deserves an opportunity to learn, share their opinion and define their future.  By supporting scholarships, your organization is expressing a commitment to providing opportunity for the next generation of leaders.  We can assist in endowing a scholarship in your organization’s name in recognition of our shared belief that every person deserves an opportunity to learn, share their opinion and define their future.

Corporate Matching Gifts: Matching gift programs are a wonderful way for employers to reward their employees’ charitable contributions.  Whether you’re an employer looking to register your program with us or an employee looking to leverage an existing company program, we can help make the process run smoothly.

In-Kind Goods and Services: The University of Windsor has a need for certain goods and services from our partners.  Examples include specialized equipment that can be used in student research labs and software licenses that keep our students on the cutting-edge of the tools of their field of choice.  We are happy to work with you to identify where your gift may be a fit on our campus.  In some circumstances, a charitable donation receipt may be available.

Program and Research Grants: A University plays a crucial role in driving economic renewal and sustainability. It provides an educated workforce, support for innovation and research, and a place to nurture the entrepreneurial spirit.  The University of Windsor connects with the communities we serve through innovative programs and internationally recognized research.  Your support can create new connections within the community while making a difference on a local or national level.

We also work closely with departments across campus to facilitate a variety of opportunities for collaboration.  Whether it’s assisting your organization in recruiting from our pool of skilled graduates, identifying philanthropic opportunities that recognize your commitment to our campus or enabling access to our world class research faculty and facilities, we are ready to work together in support of your organization’s goals.
