Please note that due to the launch of New Core and corresponding systems changes in January-February 2019, the distribution of the Alumni Impact Fund has had to be moved until the end of February. We apologise for this change and any inconvenience caused. We aim to release funds as soon as we are able and will continue to regularly communicate with project leads. Due to this delay, we have extended the spend and project deadlines which we hope will allow sufficient additional time for projects to be completed. 

Thank you for your patience and co-operation. If you have any questions, or if your project will be significantly impacted by these changes, please email Grace Surman.
