Annual Giving - Our Priority Areas

The Annual Giving Programme supports the University of Southampton and its strategic priorities through three key priority areas that reflect the aims of the University, enabling the best and brightest students at Southampton to receive the best education.

The University of Southampton combines academic excellence with an innovative and entrepreneurial approach to research, supporting a culture that engages and challenges our students in their pursuit of learning. We are one of the UK’s top 15 research institutions focused on creating world-leading breakthroughs and unique discoveries in areas such as harnessing the immune system in the fight against cancer, uncovering the past through revolutionary excavation techniques, exploring uncharted waters to discover new deep-sea species and through our innovative advances in fibre optic technologies, connecting you to the web faster than ever before. Our bright and talented students are at the centre of these breakthroughs and you can help to continue their amazing work by giving them every opportunity to succeed.

As a graduate of the University, we hope that you are proud of the experiences you had as a student and that these paved the way for a successful future. A regular donation is a fantastic way for you to encourage and enable our students to be the best and brightest in their chosen field, regardless of their background or circumstances. With your support we are able to provide more scholarships and bursaries, improvements to student facilities and outstanding experiences that shape our students into the leaders of tomorrow.

The priority areas below represent the very foundation of the University and are supported by our alumni and friends through annual and regular gifts. The support from our alumni and friends is very important to the success of our students and we invite each of you to be a part of this great community of donors.

Gifts to these programme areas can be made online now or via our gift form and sent to:
