The Development Office raises funds to support uOttawa’s strategic priorities. We work with individual donors, corporations and foundations to build relationships that lead to philanthropic engagement, finding ways to help our donors direct their gifts to projects that inspire them.
Our current campaign, Defy the Conventional, is a major fundraising project designed to support the University’s vision for 2020 — fostering the student experience, research excellence, international engagement and bilingualism. The campaign allows donors to target a gift of any size to a project or faculty of their choice, engaging young alumni as well as established donors.
In addition to the major campaign, we conduct a number of other fundraising activities in support of uOttawa’s activities and priorities.
