Request our Services


The Donations staff and their Director of Advancement Services welcome inquiries concerning the legal requirements of tax receipting. If questions arise about the definition of a "gift" as set out by the Canada Revenue Agency or McMaster University's policies, please contact our office. Additionally, we are available to discuss ways of structuring a fundraising event to ensure that participants can receive tax receipts, if that is desirable.

For University Advancement database users, we are on hand to suggest ways of extracting information from the database through either do-it-yourself reports or report-request submissions to the programming staff of Advancement Services.
