100 trees

Celebrate our Centenary year with us by dedicating a tree. Make your lasting mark on the University of Leicester campus and contribute to our Sanctuary Scholars fund.

As part of our Centenary celebrations on the 4 October 2021, to celebrate our official birthday we planted a tree as a symbol of our commitment as a University, to promoting positive change in the local and global community. 

Through the year we will plant 100 trees across our campuses to mark out 100 years of change. We are inviting our partners, alumni and friends to support a tree as an enduring legacy.

The trees also carry another gift, with up to 10% of the total donation going to our Sanctuary Scholars fund, providing essential support to University of Leicester students who are refugees or asylum seekers. 

We will place a plaque with the tree featuring your chosen dedication, include you in our new ‘Golden Book’ – a record of donations to the University during this seminal period - and on our donations webpage. We’d also be happy to share pictures and feature the planting on our social media channels. 

Our trees are in donation categories from £100 to £450 in increments of £25 with many species and locations across campus. 

Contact the Centenary Team (centenary@le.ac.uk) to choose your dedicated tree and we will do the rest!
