A community of support

As well as the impactful donations received by the University for major projects and world-class research, gifts received by the Edinburgh Fund – our general pot of unrestricted funds that is channelled into areas of greatest
need – along with the efforts of our army of community fundraisers, are vital to the ongoing enhancement of learning, teaching, research and the student experience at Edinburgh.

Edinburgh Fund
