The University of Birmingham, and by definition, the College of Medical and Dental Sciences, is an exempt charity under Schedule 2 of the Charities Act 1993. This means that donations and philanthropic gifts received can be increased by 25% thanks to Gift Aid. Alumni and supporters are an essential part of our community, and make a significant contribution to ourwork each year. All fundraising staff are funded through the central accounts of the University, meaning that every penny of a donation goes to the cause the donor has selected.
Thank you to our donors
We're excited to announce the official close of the Circles of Influence fundraising campaign. More than £193 million has been given to the University since the campaign was launched in 2009, smashing the £160 million target.
Our 10,500 amazing donors have transformed our campus, funded research with global impact and given students life-changing opportunities. Watch the video to find out more.
We are continuing the tradition of charitable giving which founded the University more than 100 years ago by fundraising for a range of new projects addressing society's biggest challenges.
