American Friends

We are grateful for the support we receive from our friends around the world. Gifts from alumni and friends outside of Canada are always welcome. In many cases, they are eligible for tax credits, especially for donors living in the U.S. To find out more, check with your financial advisor about giving to the University of Calgary.

For donors living in the U.S. there are two ways to give:
1. Directly to the University of Calgary
2. Through the American Friends charity

Give directly to the University of Calgary

Under the Canada-U.S. tax treaty, U.S. taxpayers may claim a charitable deduction on their income tax return for gifts made to the University of Calgary, provided the taxpayer or a member of his or her family is currently enrolled at the university, or was enrolled at the university in the past.

You may claim the deduction in the same way a U.S. taxpayer would claim a deduction for making a donation to a university in the U.S.

The University of Calgary is registered as a charitable organization with the Canada Revenue Agency, charitable Number 10810 2864 RR0001, and is authorized to issue receipts for income tax purposes.
