The Campaign for UCL


The Campaign for UCL 

Philanthropy founded UCL as a home for radical thinkers and to open up education for all on equal terms. Nearly 200 years later, philanthropy is still at the heart of UCL and enabling us to fulfil those founding principles in a global context.


In September 2016, UCL launches its biggest ever fundraising and engagement Campaign focused on four main themes – students, health, London and disruptive thinking. It will also grow its worldwide community of friends, supporters, alumni, volunteers and mentors to create an unbeatable social and professional network.


Through this Campaign, UCL will enhance its major contributions to the health and wealth of the UK and the world. Its major targets include - to better diagnose and treat, and ultimately cure, conditions like dementia and cancer; to develop a major new campus in east London and improve opportunities for our new neighbours; to build up our scholarships fund so that no person’s potential is wasted or ambition thwarted by lack of finance; to find new ways to demolish barriers between disciplines that hamper discovery and application.


Please get involved by joining one of our events, interacting with us on social media or making UCL your chosen charity.
