The University of St Andrews is deemed to be a ‘prescribed university outside Canada’ by the Canada Revenue Agency. This status allows individuals and trusts to claim a non-refundable tax credit for Canadian income tax purposes in respect of donations made to the University. Corporations may be eligible for a deduction in respect of such a donation. We issue tax receipts for all Canadian donations in a format approved by the Canada Revenue Agency. For more information please visit Canada Revenue Agency.

Leave a legacy bequest

We understand that a legacy is one of the most personally significant gifts a donor can make to St Andrews. Since the foundation of the University, St Andrews has relied upon the generosity of committed supporters to facilitate world renowned research and teaching. You can join them, and use your legacy to support:

  • undergraduate and postgraduate scholarships and bursaries
  • academic posts and research programmes in specific University schools and departments
  • St Andrews’ rich cultural heritage of historic buildings, libraries, collections and museums
  • University sports’ facilities and activities, from golf to korfball to water polo

Or, you can support them all by leaving a gift for the general purposes of the University.
