Fundraise Your Way

What you can do

Looking to Fundraise Your Way for the cause you care about most?


You can turn almost any hobby, occasion or challenge into a fundraising activity. From once-in-a-lifetime challenges to small informal events there are countless ways to raise money for your chosen area of the University. Whether you are sporty, creative, entrepreneurial or just up for a challenge, your contribution and commitment can make a real difference.

There’s a variety of University centres and projects you can support. All the money you help raise is processed through the University of Edinburgh Development Trust (registered charity SC004307). This ensures 100% of the money you raise goes directly to the cause and put to use straight away.

University of Edinburgh

The University of Edinburgh is a registered charity whose impact and reach extends far beyond the education of the student body. With expertise in medicine, the sciences and humanities, and centres investigating everything from major brain disorders to inclusion and diversity; the University can be an effective and powerful force for advancement and change with a truly global reach.

Like all major charities, the University relies on donations and, alongside large scale philanthropic gifts, has benefited from the time and commitment of thousands of fundraisers who have baked, cycled, hiked, knitted, swam, climbed and danced to raise money for the University.
