Western University Be Extraordinary The Campaign For Western

Western’s Endowment

June 30, 2016

578 million

A critical element in the success of any university is the generous financial support it receives from its donor community. Gifts of any type and size have a significant impact; however, an endowment, by design, is unique as it benefits both current and future generations. Thank you for contributing to Western’s Endowment.

More than just money, your gift is a source of encouragement for students and researchers alike including PhD student, Samar Sayedyahossein, who says, “Although doing research in and of itself is very rewarding, having donor support makes a huge difference. It is like giving a glass of water to a runner during a long distance marathon. It motivates us to do a better job and to keep going in difficult moments.”

Investment Return

As expected, we experienced normal investment market fluctuations over the year. For the period May 1, 2015 to April 30, 2016, the investment return, net of investment management costs of approximately 0.55 per cent, was -0.34 per cent. Western continues to exceed its benchmarks and is well-poised for long-term success. For more information on Western’s investments, please refer to the 2015 Investment Report.
