Don't miss out on your 2020 charitable tax credit

You have the power to create positive change with far-reaching impact. You enable students to achieve their dreams and become global citizens. Your support makes innovative research possible, which delivers sustainable and relevant solutions to today’s challenges. Your gift will help build healthier and more vibrant communities.

Although SFU will be closed December 25 - January 1, there is still time to help students going into the spring term. Make your year-end gift to support our future alumni before midnight on December 31 and your donation may be eligible for a 2020 tax receipt.

There are three easy ways to receive your 2020 tax receipt:

  1. Donate online by December 31, 2020 at 11:59 p.m.
  2. Mail a cheque made payable to Simon Fraser University:

    2118 Strand Hall
    8888 University Dr
    Burnaby, BC V5A 1S6

    Your gift must be dated and postmarked December 31, 2020 or earlier to qualify for a 2020 tax receipt.

  3. Call Alia Romeih at 778-782-7250 by December 18 to make a donation over the phone.

Your support will pay itself back many times over in the good it creates—for individual students, community well-being, academic excellence, and the innovation and entrepreneurship that is essential to Canada and people around the world.

Thank you for your support!

Tax Receipt Eligibility

Individuals and businesses who give an eligible gift of $10 or more may receive a Canadian tax receipt. If you reside in Canada or the U.S., you can use the receipt to claim charitable tax credits.


If you make a gift online, you’ll receive a Canadian tax receipt. SFU alumni and family of alumni can use a Canadian tax receipt against income in the U.S.

If you would like a U.S. tax receipt, please donate with a cheque made payable to "Friends of SFU."
