The ‘Whose life will you change?’ campaign has been launched to raise awareness
of the significant impacts philanthropic donations have on universities - and ultimately
on wider society as a whole. In essence, the campaign is seeking to encourage more
people to consider a university as one of their charitable priorities.
Everyone’s lives are touched by universities in some way - not just those who have
studied at a university. For example, many of the real battles against disease,
poverty and climate change are taking place in university laboratories and seminar
rooms. Universities also play a vital role in the economic well-being and development
of communities at a local and national level.
Among other things, donations also help to make good institutions even better by
funding research, new facilities and nurturing tomorrow’s talent through bursaries
The transformational effects on the individual lives of those who have attended
university are also enormous. If university has changed your life, think about giving
something back - small, regular donations can make a real difference.
The campaign is running in support of the Government’s £200million matched funding scheme
which means your donation could be worth up to twice as much so there’s never been a better time to give.
The campaign involves a variety of initiatives involving universities across the
country. Visit the news pages on this site regularly to find
