Highlights of the year

In Bristol’s best philanthropic year to date, we received over £17m in new pledges in 2016/17, and over £8 million in cash. Here’s a glimpse at some of the projects you've supported.

Reimagining Bristol’s future

The University’s received its largest ever single gift to support the creation of the its new Temple Quarter Enterprise Campus (TQEC). Find out more about this visionary support.

Championing the pursuit of knowledge

This year alumni have enabled Bristol to push innovative research and provide high quality facilities for our PhD students to pursue their studies and further the knowledge and achievements of our University community.

Enriching the student experience

We all have memories from our student years which have stayed with us, shaped us, even dramatically changed the course of our lives. Thanks to a grant from the Knowlson Travel Award, medical student Catherine Ollerhead experienced just this. 

Empowering the next generation

41 talented students who would not have otherwise had access to a university education have been able to realise their aspirations with a life-changing Bristol degree through the Bristol Scholars programme. 

Reaching for new horizons‌

Inspired by research at the University of Bristol, alumnus Dr Jonathan de Pass (MB ChB 1979) and his wife Georgina recently donated £1 million to boost Bristol’s research capability.

Celebrate your support

We want to show our appreciation, and recognise the many and varied contributions from our valued supporters. So, we are pleased to launch five new Giving Circles, which build upon the success of the Bristol Pioneers, established in 2005.
