We are only one month away from the launch of our Annual Fund, Bridge the Gap campaign, which means that alumni around the world will be encouraged to donate towards identified priority projects.
Stellenbosch University’s Annual Fund is an annual fundraising initiative that invites alumni, the student community, staff, parents, and friends of the University to support our students in overcoming the obstacles on their path to success.
Our students are at the heart of all that we do, so each year we work with our university community to identify priority initiatives to help our students succeed. The aim of this Fund is to close the gap between talent and financial need; therefore the Development and Alumni Relations Division will be supporting a number of student community-led initiatives under the umbrella of our Annual Fund.
Donations to the Annual Fund go into a central fund that is overseen and administered by an Annual Fund Committee. These donations directly fund students’ needs and make an immediate and tangible difference in their lives by fuelling residential university life, our student wellness resources and outreach programmes.
You can help us to remove the obstacles — further exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic — that are hindering Maties from having a meaningful student experience and obtaining that sought-after degree. With your support we can send our students out into the world, prepared to use the knowledge, skills and values obtained during their studies at Maties to make a positive difference in society. Every euro can make a difference! The cumulative impact of hundreds of generous donors can be staggering. Your contribution, no matter how small or large, is appreciated and will truly pave their way to success.
- The Annual Fund will be launched in the autumn in Europe. Keep an eye on your inbox to find out where your support is needed.
