Gifts of Securities
Gifts of securities (publicly-traded securities such as stocks, bonds, mutual funds or employee stock option shares) can be a very attractive way to make a gift to Nipissing University. In 2006 the Federal Government eliminated the capital gains tax on gifts of publicly traded securities to registered charities. Significant tax savings could be yours when you make a gift of securities to Nipissing University.  To make a gift of securities please contact us for more information (705) 474-3450 ext. 4665 or e-mail us.

Memorial Gifts
Honour a family member, friend, classmate, or faculty member with a gift in support of an area or program of importance to that person. You can also choose to leave the gift unrestricted for use at the University’s discretion. Please call (705) 474-3450 ext. 4665 or e-mail us to make arrangements.

Non-monetary gifts such as books, artwork, or equipment bring great value to the University. To donate a tangible item, please call (705) 474-3450 ext. 4665 or e-mail us

Matching-Gift Programs 
An easy way to double or even triple your donation to Nipissing University is to find out if your company has a matching-gift program. Such programs typically match all or a percentage of employee contributions to charitable organizations, making the employer a partner in employees’ personal philanthropy. Simply obtain a matching-gift form from your employer’s human resources office, fill it out, and provide it to Nipissing University with your contribution.
