Each year, our annual telephone campaign is an incredible opportunity for our students to talk with our alumni and supporters about what’s happening at the University and raise funds - this May and June, our team of students have raised £108,393 in confirmed gifts from over 130 supporters who have pledged to invest in a dynamic future for Brunel’s students and University community.
We have been amazed and humbled by the fantastic support shown to this year’s Annual Giving Campaign through the Telephone Campaign, but we're hoping to do even more! Reaching £125,000 in confirmed gifts will enable us to offer 10 more students the opportunity to gain work or study experience overseas in the coming year and will fund an additional student for three years on the Brunel Bursary Programme.
Annual Giving is a tradition that links Brunelians of every generation. If you can, please share in this tradition and pledge your support today!
100% of money raised goes directly towards helping students.
How your gift makes a difference
Gifts to Annual Giving have immediate impact. They are essential in enabling the University to extend financial support to every student who needs it, support excellence in teaching and research, and fund emerging opportunities for learning and discovery. This year, we are thrilled to be fundraising for our new Global Opportunities Fund alongside our existing Brunel Scholarships. The Global Opportunities Fund is Brunel’s answer to the growing challenge facing students in gaining much-needed international experience through internships, placements and summer schools abroad. In order to show how important this is to the University, the Vice-Chancellor has committed to matching all gifts to the Fund made during the campaign.
Monthly Amount Value over five years with Gift Aid This could fund
£5 £375 A student in an emergency situation
£10 £750 Overseas placement travel costs
£20 £1500 Living costs for an international placement for a lower income student
A gift of any size to the Fund will provide vital help for our students who would not otherwise be able to undertake overseas experiences, and give them access to lives in which they will make contributions in their families, careers, and communities. You can help us give the gift of an education; and not just one in a classroom.
Supporting a student like Sophie, can have a life changing impact on both you and the student you help. Donations like yours ensure that students are recognised for their achievements and are able to fulfil their full potential at Brunel.
Your generosity helps to provide:
- Scholarships for talented students who may otherwise not be able to attend University
- International experience for students unable to afford the cost from their own resources
- Music awards to help students develop their musical talents alongside their academic studies
- Support for students facing unexpected or emergency circumstances through our Hardship Fund
