As part of our Annual Fund Campaign, each year we reach out to our alumnae, parents, and friends to ask them to support our Brescia students. So many of our talented and deserving students and graduates would not be where they are today without the financial assitance they received. Please click here to read some of their stories and learn the impact your donor dollars can have.
Class Giving allows students to leave their mark on Brescia before they leave and to give back to the university they've called home. It also gives new graduates an opportunity to embrace their new roles as alumnae and supporters who are helping to ensure that future students will also benefit from the Brescia experience.

Reunions are some of the happiest times at Brescia. As an alumna, you remember what it’s like to be a student. As you reflect on the powerful presence the College has been in your life, you may wonder how you can give back. Brescia's Reunion Campaign is a way to not only celebrate these milestones in your life, but to also give back in a meaningful way.
During your reunion year, please consider making a special gift and inspire your classmates to do the same.
Legacy giving is about the future. Your future. And Brescia’s future. If you feel strongly that Brescia should exist to educate and empower students for future generations, consider leaving a legacy gift. There are many types of legacy gifts, but the most common are bequests. To learn more about legacy giving and to see if it is the right fit for you, please read our Legacy Giving Brochure.
If you have already included Brescia in your will or are planning to make a legacy gift to Brescia, let us know by downloading the Statement of Expectancy Form. The form can be completed and mailed to: Brescia University College Foundation, 1285 Western Road, London, Ontario, N6G 1H2.
You can make a memorial gift to Brescia to honour the memory of a friend or loved one, or pay tribute to someone on a special occasion, such as a birthday, anniversary, or graduation. A card will be sent to the honouree or family member on your behalf.
We would be happy to help you celebrate the people who are an important part of your life.
This new initiative is a way for you to gather some friends together to raise money for special projects at Brescia. We provide you with a toolkit to get you started and give you advice along the way. Giving circles are meant to be flexible and fun, and fill tangible needs at the College. The very first giving circle raised more than $2,500 to purchase kitchen utensils for the food laboratory!
Brescia University College has a strong philanthropic community. Our employees believe in women’s education, value our students, and want Brescia to be the best place it can be – the university college of choice for women students.
Payroll donation is the easiest way for you to join your colleagues in building Brescia’s future. You can choose any amount that is comfortable for you and you can change the amount at any time (10 working days notice is required). The total amount of your donations will be included on your T4. To see how a small donation each pay period can accumulate to a greater charitable contribution at the end of the year view the donation grid.
You can also choose where you would like to direct your donation as well as split it among two or more areas. For a full list of areas you can donate towards visit http://brescia.uwo.ca/support/index.html or contact Angela Lawrence at extension 28077 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
To sign up for payroll donations or to update your donation information, please fill out the Employee Payroll Deduction Form. (To use the fillable PDF form, right-click on the link and download the form to your system, fill out the form using Adobe reader and email to email@example.com.)
A third-party event is an activity designed to raise funds for the support of Brescia University College that is planned, implemented and financed by individuals, or organizations outside of Brescia. In addition to raising funds to benefit Brescia, these events serve a vital role by raising awareness about the College and its mission.
Please review Brescia University College Foundation's Third-Party Toolkit & Guidelines if you are interested in learning more about this opportunity.
There have been important changes to the taxation of charitable gifts of securities. It is now even more tax-advantageous for you to make a gift of stock rather than cash.
If this method works for you, the easiest way to make a gift of stock is to have the shares electronically transferred from your account to the Brescia Foundations's account using this form. The receipt value is for the closing trading price on the day that the shares are received into the account.
