Vari hall

The year is quickly coming to a close, and hundreds of faculty, staff and retirees have already made their 2023 donation to York University. The Division of Advancement thanks those 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 in the West Office Building on York’s Keele Campus) by noon on Thursday, Dec. 21 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 2023, all cheques must be accompanied by the original envelope postmarked on or before Dec. 31.

Advancement staff are preparing for a well-deserved break over the holidays. The office will be closed from Friday, Dec. 22 to Tuesday, Jan. 2, 2024. While the office is closed, donations can be made in two ways:

To ensure you receive a 2023 tax receipt for your donation, take note of the following requirements:

  • Donations must be received on or before Dec. 31, 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 2024 but must have a valid postmark of Dec. 31 or earlier.
  • Cheques must be made payable to York University.

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.
