Corporate giving

Like many other universities, the University of Ottawa relies upon support from the private sector to sustain its research and educational programming, as well as to enrich the student experience.

We know that giving back to the community is important to you as a company. There are many ways you can give: cash, stocks and securities, and gifts-in-kind. You can direct your support to a faculty, department, special project. You can also create a matching gifts program for your employees.

Event sponsorship and community building

Businesses can strengthen their brands by sponsoring events or special promotions. We work with corporations to ensure that agreements will both meet the goals of the business and the needs of the University. We can help you connect with the right audience, whether it’s a specific group or those at University-wide events.

Our office would be pleased to assist in helping you build a partnership with the University. Please contact us at with any questions or inquiries.
