Newcastle Student Fund

Double your impact this winter with match-funded donations

Students are at the heart of everything we do

Since the Newcastle Student Fund launched in June 2021, you have donated a phenomenal £185,000 to support our students. This money has supported students in a variety of ways. It has provided Christmas care packages to care leavers. It's also funded tuition fees for students seeking asylum. You have made a real difference to our student community. Thank you.

Christmas is a time of hope and kindness, exactly the values the Fund was founded on. That's why we're giving you the opportunity to double the impact of your donations this winter. For every £1 donated between 1 November - 31 December 2021, £2 will go to our student community.

The Newcastle University Development Trust will match donations pledged up to a cumulative total of £100,000.

You can ensure more students can receive support in 2022, and beyond. Get involved by donating to the Newcastle Student Fund before 31 December 2021.

Please note: these are just a few ways your donation can support current and future Newcastle students. Find out how donations to the Newcastle Student Fund are already making a difference to the student community this academic year.

Your donation will help our students:

Durga's Story

I can think of few causes more worthwhile than education and having the ability to support current students, at a place that I know is making a difference, presents a tremendous opportunity.
