Welcome to the Queen’s Debating Union giving page! We are so thankful that you are thinking about making a gift to our club.
Founded in the infancy of Queen's University in 1843, the Queen’s Debating Union is committed to encouraging students from all educational backgrounds to participate in politically and socially relevant dialogue.
Today, the QDU regularly wins the National Championship, most recently in 2017, and attends the annual World University Debating Championship, this year hosted in Thailand. In addition to holding multiple debating tournaments throughout the year, including the Chancellor’s Cup, Sutherland IV and the Central Canadian Novice Championship, the club also attends external tournaments weekly, hosts weekly meetings, coaches local public-school students, and organizes numerous show debates, socials, and events. The QDU also moderates public debates and debate-related events throughout Queen's University, including assisting the Inter-Collegiate Business Competition (ICBC), Canada's oldest and largest undergraduate business case competition.
Between our competitive achievements and our success in hosting numerous competitions at Queen's, the QDU has become the 16th ranked debating society in the world.
With your support, we will be able to provide financial support to students to participate in tournaments all over the world, regardless of financial barriers.
Please give today!
