What is it?

Special Purpose Funds are University-designated or donated funds for specific endeavours other than Operating, Ancillary, Scholarship, Research, Endowment, or Plant (capital). Examples may include lecture series or faculty chairs.

Why is it important?

Having these Funds specially designated allows the University to report on them separately when preparing our financial reports and results.

Where do I find more information?

To request a Special Purpose fund, contact the Controller’s Office, Financial Services.
