Help shape the future

Universities in the UK receive a large proportion of their funding from the Government, but they also rely on philanthropic gifts (voluntary donations) from a diverse range of people and organisations.

Regular giving from alumni and other donors can make a real difference, however small or large the amount. Giving to Nottingham Trent University is not just making a charitable donation, it's about investing in the development of society as a whole.

The gift of universities

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 and scholarships. All of this is true at NTU.

Our charitable status

In common with many other universities, NTU is an exempt charity. Exempt charities benefit from the same tax advantages as all charities, and have the same obligations to comply with tax law.

The Office for Students (OfS), created by the Higher Education and Research Act which received Royal Assent in April 2017, acts as our principal regulator.

Alumni Fund: you make the difference

 I recently returned to my University to see for myself how my contribution to the Alumni Fund was impacting on today's students. To say I was impressed is an understatement.
