Where your money goes

Thanks to the amazing generosity of our supporters, we’re able to have a big impact on the lives of real people.

Our aim is to make sure your donations go as far as possible. Every gift to Manchester makes a difference and thousands of people choose to donate to the University every year. 


Your donations help people like Hallie

Hallie grew up in Harpurhey, one of the most deprived parts of the UK. After falling pregnant at 15, Hallie believed her dream of a university education was lost. But thanks to the Manchester Access Programme, and a donor-funded scholarship, Hallie is pursuing her dream of studying English Literature at Manchester.

How we spend your donations

For every pound you donate, 100% goes towards benefiting our students and our research.
