Be a part of your class legacy by contributing to your class gift.

There are several ways to create your legacy through a planned gift to Brock.

See the planned giving page for more information.

When friends of the University pass away, gifts can be directed to Brock University, designated for an award or named memorial fund, and notice placed in the obituary. Gifts can also be directed to the University in someone’s honour when friends of Brock celebrate important life occasions such as weddings or retirements, or when they want to honour a favourite professor or friend. Notice of gifts is sent to the honoured person or bereaved family members.

Double the value of your gift by taking part in our corporate matching gifts program.

If you are part of an organization or are a current or retired employee; spouse, widow or widower of an employee; or a member of the Board of Directors, your gift can have twice the impact. You may also be able to use the matching gift program of a parent, subsidiary or affiliate company.

What companies are eligible

Ask your human resources department for more information. If your company is eligible, request a matching gift form from your employer, and send it completed and signed with your gift. We will do the rest.

If you have questions about the corporate matching gifts program, email Jackie Nguyen, Major Gifts Officer.

Many students look to Student Awards to support the costs of university and to contribute to their success as a student. Donor support is critical in establishing and maintaining these student awards. Visit our student awards page for more information.
