At the University of Leicester, philanthropy has driven impact for nearly 100 years. We are one of only two universities in the world to be founded as a living memorial to those who served and lost their lives in the First World War. Without philanthropy we would not be here and thus we are uniquely aware of the impact philanthropy has on our students, staff, research, campus, community, and society. Your support ensures that we remain a leading teaching and research university that strives to develop the leaders of tomorrow and tackle the world’s greatest challenges.

Please read more about our response to the coronavirus. At this time of unprecedented change, your gifts are especially welcomed, allowing us to respond quickly to support our students and staff as they rise to the challenges we face.
