How to make your Gift

How to make your gift

We want to prepare our graduates to be invaluable citizens and leaders within the community. Mount Royal gives them the competitive edge of the younger generation.

At Mount Royal, we firmly believe that a lack of financial resources should never prevent any student from pursuing an education. You can make a difference in the lives of students by making a gift today to a variety of areas. Like our supporters, we know the value of optimal resources for teaching and learning — preparing our graduates to be invaluable citizens and leaders within the community. Help us continue to give our younger generation the competitive edge to make their dreams come true. 

Give online today!


It's easy to make your contribution online, by mail or fax, or even visit us in person. We also accept gifts-in-kindbequests in wills and gifts of marketable securities. You are welcome to designate your gift to one of our funding priorities or another area of interest, and we are happy to work with you to find a designation that appeals to you most. There are many options for giving that can suit your needs. For example, some employers offer a gift matching program that could double the impact of the gift if you are able to utilize such a program.
