The Accounting and Finance Endowment Fund (AFEF), formerly known as the Accounting Endowment Fund (AEF), has and will always be for the betterment of the students of the School of Accounting and Finance (SAF). Starting Fall 2015, AFSA is no longer the organization that is the sole fiduciary of the fund, and is instead managed by the AFEF Board of Directors, who evaluate proposals each term.  Students enrolled in the SAF contribute $20 to the fund for each term they are on campus. Contributions made to the AFEF are fully tax-deductible and tax receipts are issued by the University of Waterloo prior to each tax season through Quest. For those students who do not want to contribute AFEF, refunds are available at the beginning of every academic term for the first three weeks. The refund form is the same as the the refund form for Arts, Math and Science Endowment Funds. Students who do not request a refund for the Endowment Fund fee will receive a uWaterloo Donation Receipt when receipts for tax purposes are sent to students. AFSA does not handle the actual refunding of any funds as it is streamlined through UW Finance.
Starting Fall 2015, students also contribute $30 to the Accounting & Finance Association fee (previously voted in by referendum by the SAF student body during 2014-15). You can request a refund for the $30 contribution to Accounting & Finance Association through a link posted on the website  in the first week of classes. The first step is to state your reasoning for requesting a refund and the second step is to provide your information as well as confirm your acknowledgement of the consequences of the refund. This link will be open for the period of 2 weeks, or usually until the third Friday of the term. Please see the specific post for the current term on the homepage of the AFSA website.
If you have any questions or concerns about the AFEF or AFSA refunds, please do not hesitate to contact the VP Finance, Ganatheepan Ganeshalingam , at
