Queen's University Archives welcomes monetary gifts to be placed towards our many projects and endeavours. All gifts are eligible for a tax receipt from the University. Please consider donating to any one of the funds listed:
Friends of the Archives
Queen’s Archives is alive with stories – not only the history of Queen’s and the people who have contributed to the University’s growth, but of Kingston and of generations of Canadians. The important work of maintaining the authentic record of the programs, people and operations of the University and the broader community, and providing archival management and conservation is increasingly complex and demanding as technologies and standards continue to evolve. The Friends of the Archives Fund enables the Archives to manage, conserve, preserve and make available our stories now and for generations to come.
Queen's University Archives Digitization Fund
Established through a generous donation from the Burleigh Family (Peter and Evelyn), this fund was created to process, digitize, and make publicly available on-line, and free of charge, personal papers and University records held by Queen's University Archives. The initial project was the digitization of Dr. Herbert Clarence Burleigh’s collection of genealogical material, and has progressed to the digitization of vital University records (early student registers) and Queen’s University publications (Queen’s Journal, academic calendars for various Faculties). The Queen’s University Archives Digitization Fund enables the Archives to provide greater access to the wealth of analog information available in our holdings for generations to come.
