Gift Acceptance Policy

The University of Manitoba (hereinafter “the university”) receives financial and in-kind support from individuals, organizations, foundations, trusts and government through voluntary charitable contributions, research contracts and grants and sponsorships. Such gifts are critical to the university’s mission to develop and maintain quality in faculty, students and facilities.

This document focuses primarily on policies and procedures for which charitable donation receipts (hereinafter “Receipts”) are issued.

These policies will allow staff members responsible for attracting private support to:

  • Respond to donor initiatives quickly and with certainty in order to design gifts that are beneficial to the donor and the university.
  • Work with the relevant offices outlined in these guidelines to establish a recommended course of action, when these policy guidelines do not indicate an appropriate course of action, or are inappropriate in light of aspects of a specific situation.
