On 3 December, we’ll be joining with millions of people around the world to take part in Giving Tuesday. It’s a global campaign where people are encouraged to give back to causes that they care about either through donating their time or money.
Why not join in with your fellow Surrey alumni and support your university this Giving Tuesday?
Forever Surrey Fund
Giving Tuesday is all about taking a moment to support the causes that matter to you. Thanks to the generosity of our alumni, we are able to provide amazing support to students at Surrey. From a student facing unexpected financial hardship receiving a life-changing bursary, to a student participating in a professional training year that launches their career. However due to the increasing financial pressure that is put on our students, we need your support more now than ever.
You can provide crucial support in the following key areas:
Support a student unable to cover living costs
You can provide crucial help for a student struggling to make ends meet to pay their rent, cover the cost of living, or pay for food and travel.
Support a student in an emergency
You can provide essential funding for a student that faces unexpected costs during an emergency, such as travelling to visit a sick parent, or if a student becomes sick and unable to work part time. Your support will provide immediate relief.
Give a gift that launches a student’s career
You can enable a student to take part in an industrial placement year that launches their career. We need the support of our alumni to help these students facing financial hardship fulfil their ambitions.
