Donations – instructions and guidelines
Many individuals, businesses and organisations have an interest in and feel a connection to the University and want to support important initiatives in research, education and cultural heritage.
Are you about to receive a donation or do you have a project with funding needs that may be suitable for a donation? These pages provide an overview of the process usually involved in receiving donations and instructions to help you identify, prepare for and secure a donation.
In general, the “donation process” can be described as a circle of activities. Even if the donator is known to the University previously, we need to carefully consider every potential gift and implement all the steps. A well-managed donation process lays the foundation for a long-term relationship.
The donation process
Overview of the donation process and the various steps involved in the process of receiving donations.
The Development Office always assists before, during and after receiving a donation. As a researcher, it is still an advantage to be familiar with the donation process and what steps need to be taken to facilitate a donation. This creates the right expectations and ensures good long-term relationships with donors.
The information on these pages shows these steps, provides instructions on how to proceed and directs you to the support available within the University. Once you have looked through this material, the next step is to contact the Development Office.
