Donor Update

Donor Update
26th November 2018 alumni


The Allam Medical Building was made possible through generous donations. We are now planning gateway scholarships to help people from disadvantaged backgrounds become doctors.

Here are some further donation updates from across the university:

Thank you to everyone who contributed over £100,000 in the 2018 Telephone Fundraising Campaign for student mental health support. This will help us ensure that our undergraduates are not held back by financial constraints during their time at university. We are equally grateful to those who are contributing to our Student Hardship Fund.  If you haven’t but would like to contribute, you can do so at this link:


Thank you to all members of the Vice-Chancellor’s Circle, a community of philanthropists who have given or have committed to give at least £10,000 to the University for strategic purposes.


Thank you to the Trusts and Foundations who generously supported the capital build of the Allam Medical building and the work within the Faculty of Health Sciences.


Special thanks to the Garfield Weston Foundation for a major grant of £251,397 awarded to support The Garfield Weston Foundation Paediatric and Neonatal Suite. The suite will include 10 clinical skills rooms and facilities where students will learn how to work with patients and to use specialist training equipment in clinical settings. For example, birthing simulators worn by the teaching staff or other students will promote verbal, non-verbal and physical interactions and skills development. Through the use of specialist equipment, such as birthing simulators, students will also learn how to work with patients in clinical settings.


Plans are moving ahead for the development of a crowdfunding platform for the University of Hull. The
aim is to support student clubs and societies to raise funds for various projects and will be an opportunity
for alumni, friends and families to help them directly. Watch this space!


We were deeply grateful to receive a legacy of £250,000 from the estate of Geoffrey Windas (BSc Economics 1958). Gifts in wills are hugely important and help us provide the services and support that many students need. A further £25,000 was donated to the Andrew Grant Fund for Cardiovascular Research.
