Memorial Giving

Memorial Giving

Memorial endowment scholarships and bursaries are a meaningful way to honour loved ones and continue their legacy indefinitely. Scholarships and bursaries provide students with the opportunity to pursue their education and achieve their goals while alleviating the financial stress of post-secondary. To contribute the MRU Memorial Scholarship Fund in honour of a loved one, please use the donation form below. 

To contribute to an existing Memorial Fund, please visit our current Memorial Giving Projects.

Creating an Endowment

The minimum amount required to establish a named endowment award at Mount Royal is $30,000. Endowments may be created by a single gift, or a series of gifts, over a maximum of five years. The full minimum must be invested for one year before the inaugural scholarship or bursary is awarded.

Contact Us if you would like to create a student award in memory of a loved one.

In Memoriam

In Memoriam, Mount Royal's annual ceremony held in August to commemorate new inductees. Donors and their family and friends, students and faculty gather to remember and celebrate the lives of the special individuals who inspired the most recent memorial endowment scholarships and bursaries. Together, the Memorial Park and In Memoriam honour the generous spirits whose concern for others inspired these endowments. The tranquil setting provides an area for quiet contemplation and an opportunity for reflecting on those who will forever make a difference in the lives of Mount Royal students.

Dr. John H Garden Memorial Park

Established in 1998, Dr. John H. Garden Memorial Park is dedicated to the memories of family and friends of loved ones who are remembered through memorial endowment awards for Mount Royal students. The Memorial Park was named in honour of Rev. Dr. John H. Garden (1889 - 1969). It is the focal point of remembrance on Mount Royal's campus. It is, as Dr. Garden would have wished, a place for people.
