Trusts and foundations

Charitable trusts and foundations play an important role in helping us make a positive impact, both for students and in our research.

Whether you can offer a one-off donation or a multi-year grant, your support can make a huge difference in a number of ways. If you’re a trustee, have contact with a trust, or perhaps are setting one up then we would love to hear from you.

Why Manchester?

Our researchers work tirelessly to find solutions to some of the world’s biggest problems.

Our story is one of world firsts and brilliant discoveries. In total, 25 Nobel Prize winners have worked or studied here. Manchester is the birthplace of nuclear physics, modern economics and the world’s first modern computer.

But we are so much more than academic pedigree. Social responsibility is one of the three core strategic goals in our vision and strategic plan, sitting equally alongside our commitments to research and discovery and teaching and learning.

We’re committed to making a difference to the social, economic, cultural and environmental well-being of our communities – locally, nationally and internationally.

We have a long history of partnering with trusts and foundations of all different sizes. Whatever your capacity, we’re confident that we help you make a big impact in the area you care about.

A personalised approach

We have a specialist team with extensive experience of working with trusts and foundations. Our dedicated team can help match your specific aims and objectives with one of our outstanding research, scholarship or capital projects.

Whether it’s pioneering medical research, life-changing scholarships or building state-of-the-art facilities, there are lots of ways trusts and foundations can play a vital part in the university’s work.
