Supporting Glasgow Caledonian University
Help us to make a difference
Glasgow Caledonian University’s mission has always been to provide the highest quality education for all, deliver innovative world-class research and to promote the common good – using our skills, facilities and knowledge to make a positive contribution to society and the communities we serve.
We have ambitious plans for the future and the continued philanthropic support of alumni and friends will enable us to add value in ways not possible through core-funding alone. You can read more about our plans for the future, the impact donations have made and why our donors support GCU in our dedicated publication – making a difference.
Gifts of all sizes and types will have a positive impact on the University and our students. Show your support by making a donation today. Alternatively, you can take a closer look at our areas of priority to find out how you can make a difference.
Our priorities include:-
GCU Brighter Futures Fund
The GCU Brighter Futures Fund provides scholarships, supports sports and societies, and enhances key facilities such as the library.
The award-winning Caledonian Club invites children as young as three to take classes in a ground breaking initiative designed to widen participation, transform attitudes to higher education and build key life skills.
Leaving a legacy is possibly the most personal gift you can make to GCU.
Grameen Caledonian Partnership
GCU and the Grameen Trust have formed a partnership to deliver a number of projects that will have a real and lasting impact on communities across Scotland, in Bangladesh and beyond.
Ethical Principles Behind the Acceptance of Gifts
As charitable entities whose work brings direct public benefit to the UK and the rest of the world, universities in the UK take pride in seeking gift income from UK and internationally-based donors. More than185,000 donors made gifts totalling over £500m to UK universities in 2009/10 to support the role of Higher Education and research in opening doors to education; in fostering just, sustainable and civil societies; and in seeking solutions to many of the world's most pressing problems. This support also plays an increasingly important part in helping to maintain the UK Higher Education sector's global reputation for excellence.
