The Leicester Endowment

Growing the University’s Endowment will help to balance the University’s mix of income and lessen its dependence on government funding and tuition fees. The Leicester Endowment is an unrestricted, permanently endowed fund, which will operate much like any savings and investment portfolio to form a stable, ongoing regular source of income.

Making a gift to the Endowment is one of the best opportunities for donors to achieve a lasting influence on the work of the University. 

President and Vice-Chancellor Professor Paul Boyle explained: “In the face of major government cuts in capital and revenue grants and restrictions on traditional sources of funding, building the University’s Endowment is tremendously important for our future growth and development.

“Leicester has ambitious plans and Endowment income can leverage additional funding for world-changing research and state-of-the-art facilities, as well as scholarships to attract the most talented students regardless of background.”
