The University of Dundee has a clear mission – to transform lives, locally and globally, by the creation, sharing, and application of knowledge.

Philanthropic giving is at the heart of the University and began in 1881 when Miss Mary Ann Baxter made a founding donation to establish a college in Dundee, which would later go on to become the University we are now.

We are fortunate that over the years philanthropic giving has continued and made an impact on the lives of people locally and globally through the support of scholarships, key University initiatives and research.

Here are some ways you can make an impact
