Where the need is greatest

Enhancing opportunities

University is about so much more than just studying and our Alumni Fund supports the extra-curricular activities that contribute to making DMU such a special place to study. Donations from alumni and supporters of the University allow us to give grants to sports clubs, crowdfunding projects, fund volunteering opportunities, workshops and widening participation projects, to name just a few.

Immediate impact

Our students and staff have brilliant ideas. Help us make them a reality.

Having the freedom to invest in creative and innovative ideas that have an immediate impact is crucial to delivering an incredible student experience. No matter how much you can give, we make sure it goes towards projects that directly impact students.

What your gift will support

Donations to this fund are distributed annually to initiatives that will have an immediate impact on the campus environment, teaching and learning facilities, and activities available to enhance the student experience at DMU.

For example, donations from £5 to £500 may be directed to some the following areas:

  • DMU Clubs and Societies - providing new equipment or helping to attend a coaching masterclass.
  • Match-funding for a student crowdfunding project.
  • Support volunteer led projects through our DMUlocal programme.
  • Providing additional learning resources.
  • Mental Health workshops
  • Experiential professional development opportunities for students.
  • Materials for an art students' final degree show.

Thank you

However you choose to give, whether it’s a one off £10 contribution or a regular donation by direct debit, you will be making a real difference to the lives of students and helping us to produce well rounded graduates, ready to make their mark on the world.

Help us succeed!

Please help us to promote this fund. If making a donation is not possible for you at this time, you don't need to give money to help us succeed! Please share this project with anyone you think would support us – on Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, by email, telephone, in a chat over the fence or on your blog.

In fact, share it with everyone you know, the more people who are aware of the initiative, the more likely we are to succeed in raising funds to support our student body.

Thank you for taking the time to find out about the Alumni Fund, just one of the ways we’re helping to connect our global alumni community with the university today. DMU isn’t just for a few years, DMU is for life!
