The Fund for the Greatest Need

By giving to the Fund for the Greatest Need, our supporters are funding projects that help us to respond to the needs of our students and take advantage of emerging opportunities.

Through education, innovation and research the University unlocks potential and provides opportunities that transform lives. The Fund for the Greatest Need enables us to maximise these opportunities for our students, researchers and the wider community.

Formula Student Team

Formula Student

The Southampton University Formula Student Team (SUFST) is an innovative student society that competes with other Formula Student teams across the world. Each team designs and builds a single-seat racing car from scratch before putting it to the test by racing it at one of the world’s greatest racetracks. Gifts to support the Fund for the Greatest Need have enabled us to support our SUFST students to compete with their car at the world-famous Silverstone in 2013 and 2014.

We are incredibly grateful for support that enables our students to take part in activities like this, helping them to improve their skills and teamwork, broaden their horizons and provide them with fantastic memories to last a lifetime.
