Donation Policy and Guidelines
The TRU Library’s mission is to advance inquiry, discovery and engagement by providing the TRU Community with quality resources, services and technologies to support teaching, learning and research. The Library welcomes inquiries regarding financial donations. All gifts must conform to the Canada Revenue Agency’s definition of a gift, and to Thompson Rivers University’s Fundraising and Recognition policy (BRD 04-1).
TRU Library is not accepting physical donations (books, journals, videos, etc..). You can make a financial donation to help us build the strongest collection and access to information resources to support of the university’s teaching, learning and research mission. All donations are tax deductible. To make a financial donation, please contact TRU Foundation.
All donor requests for anonymity will be respected to the extent legally possible. Foundation Boards and University officers empowered to accept gifts must be aware of the identity of the donor before authorizing the issuance of a gift receipt for taxable purposes, in order to comply with the Income Tax Act.
Public recognition will be accorded based on the level of the gift and in compliance with the University’s Donor Recognition Policy, and taking into account the wishes of the donor.
Donor names, together with donation amounts, are kept on a privileged and confidential basis, and are protected from disclosure unless permission is given by the donor, or there is a statutory requirement for disclosure.
