The Commerce 1974 Exchange Bursary
In commemoration of their 45th reunion, the Commerce Class of 1974 is working to grow their class fund - the Commerce 1974 Exchange Bursary. This fund is awarded to a student in the Bachelor of Commerce Program participating in an international study opportunity through a formal Queen’s bi-lateral exchange or by attending the Bader International Study Centre.
Another option is to fund The Dean's Innovation Fund which provides a flexible fund that supports the foundation for our program. The fund has provided the seed capital for important initiatives like the Social Impact Summit & the Commerce Entrance Scholarships.
The financial advantages of giving are clear:
·Gifts can be pledged over 5 years (annually, monthly, etc.)
·Gifts are tax-deductible
·Gifts made jointly with your spouse can be reported on either partner’s tax return
·Gifts of publicly traded stock or securities receive a tax receipt for the full appreciated value without being subject to capital gains tax
In addition, your company may have a matching gift program to increase the impact of your donation! Search ourdatabase of matching companies to learn more.
In celebration of your 45th reunion, please consider joining your classmates by making your gift or pledge today!
