UOD encourages alumni, students, parents, and friends to renew their ties by making gifts. Their collective support enables the university to respond to immediate needs, unexpected opportunities, and fresh ideas. Annual gifts are put to use as they come in, making them an essential complement to the endowment, which is invested for the long term.
Giving through The UOD Fund is a message to students and faculty that they can count on alumni.
In addition, when considering their own gifts, foundations, corporations, and other major donors scrutinize the percentage of alumni who participate in annual funds. This participation rate is also a factor in university ranking systems. High marks for UOD help the university attract the most talented students and faculty in the world.

Give Your Time
Just as importantly, you can give your time and expertise. There are a number of ways you can help, such as mentoring a student or recent graduate, acting as an ambassador for the University, or helping start or manage an alumni group. We’re working to make it easier for you to see all the opportunities and sign up online. In the meantime, if you’d like to get involved, just fill this form to talk about your interest.
Making a gift to one of the Colleges’ Funds will allow you to have an impact on the academic area of your choice. Gifts will have an immediate effect on the faculties, as the money raised will be spent in the same financial year. The more support a faculty receives, the more projects it is able to fund and the more students it is able to support.

Support for a Conducive Environment
UoD is enhancing and modifying its campus to offer improved support for academic activities and to accommodate the larger student intake under the undergraduate program. These changes affect all major areas of our campus, including academic buildings, amenities, student hostels and staff quarters.
Some of these changes have already been completed but we hope to continue with our program of providing an environment that meets 21st century needs and is conducive to research, learning and student life. Your contribution to our building program will help to lay a strong foundation for our work.
