Donate to the Gazette

As news media undergoes a digital evolution, newspapers are facing more challenges than ever — including Western University's student newspaper. Your donation will help ensure the Gazette remains a viable and rewarding student experience, allowing for both compelling campus journalism for our readers, as well as an unparalleled student experience for our volunteer writers.

Your donations will:

  • Help provide state-of-the-art technology and updated facilities for student reporters.
  • Help fund post-graduate scholarships for student editors pursuing careers in journalism, photography or graphic design, including those who otherwise might not be able to take advantage of the volunteer opportunities available here.
  • Help secure a measure of financial independence by creating less reliance on the student government.
  • Help fund educational and training programs for staff to enhance the quality of journalism in the paper.

Please consider a gift to the official student newspaper of Western University today.

Thank you.


Your donation will also go to fund the Maxinne Barker Gazette Award to help Western Gazette editors with financial need

Maxinne Barker served as the Gazette Women’s Editor from 1942 to 1944 while attending Western. She became a professional journalist and worked at the London Free Press and the Eastern Ontario Farmer newspaper. Together with her husband, Henry Barker (BSc ’49), they raised five children. Maxinne died in 2003 at the age of 80 and left $10,000 to the Gazette in order to start a scholarship.

If we can raise $4,000 to this endowed fund the annual return will support an award of $1,000 for an undergraduate student. We are inviting you to support this initiative to increase the award value to a meaningful amount for today’s undergraduate student. If you are able to, please go to our secure online giving page and designate your gift to Maxinne Barker Gazette Award. Alternatively, you can call 1-800-423-9631 and your gift can be processed over the phone. You can help your fellow Western Gazette Editors and a donation of any size is greatly appreciated.
