Make a bigger difference

While every gift makes a difference, we particularly value the ongoing commitment made by our Hartley Circle members, whose dedicated support will ensure the University continues to advance in the challenging years that lie ahead. As a member of the Hartley Circle, you can help us to provide life-changing opportunities for our students and to change the world for the better through research, innovation and enterprise.

If you share this ambition, please consider making a pledge to give £1,000 or more each year to the University of Southampton. We will recognise your support at an annual event for all Hartley Circle members and keep you informed about the difference your gift is making.

You can find a Hartley Circle gift form here.
