Upon making a gift you can make special donation arrangements to receive a Hong Kong, U.K., or United States tax receipt. If you live in another country, you may use our online donation platform to make a gift in Canadian dollars and we will send you a Canadian tax receipt.

Hong Kong tax receipt

If you require a Hong Kong tax receipt, you may make your donation to the University of Toronto Hong Kong Foundation in Hong Kong dollars. All donations to the Hong Kong Foundation of HK$100 or more will receive a Hong Kong tax receipt, sent to you by mail.

UK tax receipt

If you require a United Kingdom tax receipt, you may make your donation online through the The University of Toronto UK Fund – Prism the Gift Fund. For further information on ways to give from the U.K., please contact Michelle Woo, Director, Advancement Counsel at 416 946 7066 or

United States tax receipt

University of Toronto alumni and their families (spouses, children, grandchildren, parents, and siblings) may make online donations directly to U of T and use their Canadian charitable receipt for their U.S. income tax returns under the Canada-United States Income Tax Convention.

American citizens or residents who are not alumni or related to alumni of the University of Toronto, as well as corporations, foundations, estates, and trusts requiring a U.S. tax receipt, can contribute to the University through The Associates of the University of Toronto, Inc., established in 1947 to facilitate donations. The Associates is a not-for-profit organization recognized under the U.S. Internal Revenue Code, Section 501(c)(3).

To ask about giving to U of T through the Associates, please call toll free 1-800-699-1736, or e-mail
