The Distinguishing UCT Campaign has $100Million goal

May 2018 | Spring 2018

UCT continues to be the highest ranked African university globally and the leading university on the continent. We are proud that for almost 200 years our research has expanded the boundaries of knowledge, including winning Nobel prizes. Our graduates are highly sought after locally and internationally and continue to lead at all levels of society.

The Distinguishing UCT Campaign, has three main goals
Advancing ExcellenceInvesting in TalentRealising Transformation

The campaign focuses on building a strong general endowment that can provide financial stability for the university for generations to come. Growing the general endowment will give UCT much-needed flexibility in the face of declining government subsidies and the ability to respond wherever the need is greatest.

A strong endowment is a permanent source of funding that will enhance UCT’s ability to work towards its vision and mission, and remain a global player. The three campaign goals will provide for growth into the future, securing financial aid for talented individuals, and ensuring diversity in the academic, staff and student body.

We ask that you join us on this journey into the future through your endowment support of bursaries, research and community projects. I invite you to read more at the dedicated Campaign website.
