Major Level Gifts are an important lifeline to our students here at the University of Salford as they can go towards our Scholarship Programme.
A scholarship can be the defining factor for many students on whether to join or stay at university as they provide financial support to those most in need, meaning recipients are able to continue their studies with the assurance of being able to pay for food, rent, bills, and study materials.
Some of our donors are able to make gifts of £3,000 and, at this level, donors may choose to direct their gift towards an existing programme or to establish their own scholarship programme in their name, focused on a particular area of interest.
If you would like to discuss making a Major Gift to the University of Salford, please contact Sophie Thorp (Strategic Development Manager):
