2019 Telephone Campaign
2019 Annual Giving Campaign
We have been amazed and humbled by the fantastic support shown to this year’s Annual Giving Campaign through the Telephone Campaign that took place in May and June. Thank you so much to all those who have supported us so far.
The focus for our Annual Giving Campaign this year is twofold: firstly to support the Brunel Scholarships Fund, alongside enabling greater overseas opportunities for students. The Scholarships Fund is a vital and enduring need for Brunel. Higher Education is expensive, but also increasingly important for young people across the country. Alumni support allows us to provide scholarships, bursaries, awards, help for students in financial difficulty and enhance their experience at Brunel. The gift of education is one of the most precious that we can give to the next generation and it is this which the Brunel Scholarships Fund helps to provide.
We are also very excited to be launching a new Global Opportunities Fund for students in 2019-20 and are making this a centrepiece of the campaign. The Global Opportunities Fund brings together in one place all that Brunel does to support students in getting valuable overseas experience – which evidence shows has a huge effect on the lives of those who are able to undertake it. We want to ensure that this is available to all our students, not just those who are better off and so we have pledged to introduce this new fund as part of the Universities UK International Go International: Stand Out campaign: https://www.universitiesuk.ac.uk/International/go-international/stand-out
There is still time to pledge your support!
We have met our initial targets for the campaign with over £100,000 confirmed gifts raised through the Telephone Campaign this year, but we would like to see if we can raise just a little bit more. If we can raise £125,000 by October 2019, we will be able to offer an additional 10 students support through the Global Opportunities Fund AND support one further student through their education at Brunel with an additional Brunel Bursary.
To help us to reach our target, please see our current total and pledge your support on Crowdfund Brunel here:
