Supporting the Queen's Economics Department
The Queen's Economics Department has a number of endowed and expendable funds that collectively play an extremely important role in maintaining the quality of our undergraduate and graduate programs. Many of them, like the Doug Purvis Professorship and the new Alan Green Memorial Fund commemorate former faculty members and have specific goals. Others, such as the Economics Trust, are more general in nature.
Donations by Canadian residents are eligible for the charitable donation tax credit. One of the easiest ways to donate is to do so online. Although there are only four choices shown when you first access the online giving page, you can donate to any of our funds by searching through the list of Arts and Science funds and then clicking "Add to Gift Basket" once you find the one you want.
Of course, you can also send a cheque directly to the Department. Cheques should be payable to Queen's University, and the fund to which the donation is directed (for example, "David Smith Chair" or "Malcolm Urquhart Fund") should be written on the face of the cheque. Please mail to
