What Could You Do?

The University of Edinburgh is lucky to have a small army of supporters who have dedicated their time to raising funds for the University through participating in a fundraising event or challenge.

Kerry Mackay

Our supporters have swum, climbed, run, sung, walked, skydived, danced, golfed, partied and recited to raise money for us.

Motivated by a project or research area particularly close to their hearts, they go to incredible lengths to support the University in its contributions to the community.

Previous projects

Previous projects include - but are by no means limited to - research into Alzheimer’s disease, autism, cancer, epilepsy, fragile X syndrome, motor neurone disease, multiple sclerosis and funding access bursaries for students.

We can turn your interest or hobby into a fundraising event to support your most precious project.
