Fundraising advice

Members of staff seeking to raise philanthropic funds in support of their work are requested to contact the Philanthropy, Alumni and Community Engagement team via email at, in the first instance for professional fundraising advice and support.

The Philanthropy Office can ensure that any funds raised in support of your work are maximised through tax effective giving (including Gift Aid) and any eligible matched funding opportunities. We may also be able to identify donors who would be interested to fund your area of work.

As an organisational member of the Institute of Fundraising, the University is committed to achieving the highest standards of fundraising by signing up to the Institute’s Codes of Fundraising Practice. It is important that all staff contemplating raising funds abide by these Codes as well as the University's own guidelines – again, the Philanthropy Office can provide advice. We are also a member of the Council for the Advancement and Support of Education (CASE), who promote best practice and training in the sector.
