How to make or process year-end donations in time for a 2022 tax receipt

Vari Hall at night

The year is quickly coming to a close, and hundreds of faculty, staff and retirees have already made their 2022 donation to York University. Thank you to those of you who have chosen to create positive change at York this year.

For faculty and staff receiving donations, please forward any gifts received in your departments to Advancement Services (located at the West Office Building on York’s Keele Campus) by noon on Thursday, Dec. 22 to ensure timely processing and receipting. If you are expecting a credit card donation over the closure period, please direct the donor to the online donation page.

To receive a receipt for 2022, all cheques must be accompanied with the original envelope postmarked on or before Dec. 31.

Advancement staff are preparing for a well-deserved break over the holidays. Our office will be closed from Friday, Dec. 23 to Tuesday, Jan. 3, 2023. While our office is closed, donations can be made in two ways:

1. By visiting our online donation page;

2. By telephone at 416-650-8210.

To ensure you receive a 2022 tax receipt for your donation, take note of the following requirements:

  • Donations must be received on or before Dec. 31, 2022, with the cheque or credit card authorization dated Dec. 31 or earlier. This includes donations made online and by telephone.
  • Mailed donations can be received in January 2023 but must have a valid postmark of Dec. 31, or earlier.
  • Cheques must be made payable to York University.

Together, we are a community of changemakers who have adapted, innovated and persevered through the many challenges of the past few years. Our faculty, staff and students continue to pursue academic, research and professional excellence while always looking out for one another, our friends and our families.

Thank you to all of you who have helped to create positive change at York University this year. Happy holidays from the Division of Advancement.
