Ways You Can Give

Thank you to everyone who has reached out asking to help our students.


I hope all of you are doing well. These are challenging times, but they are bringing out the best in so many of us, as we work together to support those who need our help.

In response to COVID-19, all of our classes have now moved online and we’re working hard to support each of our students as they strive to adapt, to complete their studies and to support others in their local communities.

We are deeply touched by the thoughtfulness and generosity of donors who are reaching out to support our Area of Greatest Student Need fund, emergency student funding and student awards like our Changing Lives Bursary.

Please continue to look after yourselves and each other. We’re all in this together.

Your gift connects people, ideas & experiences to change lives and the world.

You can make a gift online, over the telephone or by mail

Visit our Make Your Gift Online page to learn more about what’s needed most right now, and how donors like you are shaping opportunities for learning and growth.

If you are interested in making a gift of stocks and securities, a will bequest, a life insurance policy, a RRSP or RRIF, please contact us so we can learn more about your goals for making the gift. We understand that every situation is unique.

Staff and Faculty
If you are Royal Roads staff or faculty, a payroll deduction is fast and easy— it’s a great way to make a difference you care about!
Even a small regular amount really makes a difference when it all gets added together. You can also change your mind about which fund you want to support at any time.

Monetary donations, whether by cheque, money order, credit card or currency, are the most common ways to give an outright gift to Royal Roads. A cheque is considered to have been given on the day it was mailed and a gift by credit card is considered to have been made on the date the obligation was incurred.

For more information on gifts of cash, please contact the Advancement Office by email or by phone at 1-866-207-0080.

Gift in kind

Royal Roads will obtain independent opinions of the value of gifts in kind. These gifts will be accepted on a case-by-case basis. Costs relating to acceptance, maintenance, management or resale of the gift or property will normally be the responsibility of the donor unless otherwise agreed.

If you would like more information or have any questions, please contact the Advancement Office by email or by phone at 1-866-207-0080.

Public Securities

Publicly-listed securities can include shares, bonds, bills, warrants and futures that are traded on prescribed stock exchanges. The valuation of gifts of publicly-listed securities is made by Royal Roads brokerage service.

Please contact the Advancement Office for more information by phone at 1-866-207-0080 or by email.

Monthly Gift

Monthly gifts may be made by credit card online or by submitting post-dated cheques.

If you would like more information or have any questions, please contact the Advancement Office by email or by phone at 1-866-207-0080.

Donation by will

Sometimes, people who would like to make a substantial donation cannot afford to part with assets during their lifetime. Donations by will may be specific, residual or contingent.

  • A specific gift gives Royal Roads a specific piece of property or amount of money.
  • A residual gift gives all or a portion of whatever remains of an estate after all debts, taxes expenses and specific gifts have been paid.
  • A contingent gift takes effect if certain conditions on which the gift is given are satisfied.

Please contact the Advancement Office by email or by phone at 1-866-207-0080 if you would like information to discuss with your lawyer or if you would like to discuss customized gift opportunities.
