A ‘gift’ is a mechanism by which funding is provided to a faculty member by an outside authority (typically a private entity) with which to pursue their independent work within the University without any specific deliverables. IDC is not charged on gifts. In the event that a faculty member is approached regarding a possible ‘gift’ to support their work, they are advised to liaise with the Assistant Dean for Advancement to develop an appropriate agreement to receive the funding.
