Fund-Raising for British Universities

Fund-raising at British universities could triple and yield £2 billion ($3.2 billion) a year within a decade if institutions continue to invest in building relationships with alumni, a recent report for the UK announced. About 204,000 people gave to universities last year, but this could reach 640,000 by 2022, it adds.

Professor Shirley Pearce, former vice-chancellor of Loughbourough University and chair of the report titled The Review of Philanthropy in Higher Education, stressed: “There is a real sense of momentum and this must be maintained.”

Today Go Global is working with a major UK university to assess and prioritize opportunities for increased alumni engagement both at home and abroad. A focus on student and alumni programming both at home and abroad will position the institution well in the next decade by fostering a lifelong relationship with its most recent graduates.
