Philanthropy at Edinburgh

The University of Edinburgh was founded with philanthropy. Ever since, our community of supporters has continued to believe in what we can all achieve through research and education.

Philanthropy has helped us to uncover new knowledge, support more people to reach university, create transformative experiences for our students, and more.

Your support matters.
