There are many ways to give and make a difference in the Brock community. Here you can learn about these different options for giving and feel free to reach out so we can help.
Give to BrockU
To send your donation by cheque or credit card*, download and complete the pledge form with your cheque Attn: Brock University, Development and Alumni Relations.
The security of your financial information is important to us. Upon receiving this form, a member of Brock University’s Department of Development and Donor Relations will contact you by phone to collect your credit card information.
If you are a current faculty or staff member, you can continue supporting the greatest needs at the University or a particular designation that is meaningful to you by donating via payroll contribution. To enter your payroll contribution please follow the instructions below:
- Select the cloud icon at the top right-hand corner of the page.
- Select view profile under your name.
- From the red menu on the left, select pay.
- From the tabs at the top, select voluntary deduction.
Refer to the job aid if you require support entering your contribution.
Please refer to Human Resources pay schedules if you have questions regarding pay dates.
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 Michael Duchesne or call 289-407-9515.
