Our Donor Promise

Without our generous and dedicated family of donors and supporters, we wouldn’t be where we are today. You choose to put your faith and generosity in us, and gain your confidence and ensure your trust we promise the following:

Your Gift:

We direct every penny of every gift you provide to the area of support you choose; none of your gift is spent on fundraising or administration. If you don’t specify an area, we will align funds for purposes that best advance our priorities. And if in the future our priorities change, alternative uses for your restricted donations will be discussed with you where possible.

Your Contact Details:

We will only ever contact you in a way that you are happy with. Whether by mail, email or telephone we’d like to keep you informed and involved with events, networking, news, volunteering and fundraising activities. If at any point your preferences change, we’ll amend your contact details to what you wish. To do this, you can call +44 (0)161 295 2446 or email

Your Data:

We will respect your right to privacy and confidentiality at all times, complying fully with the Data Protection Act 1998.  For further detail please see our Privacy Policy.

Your Support:

We will always be grateful for your support and will thank and acknowledge you promptly. We will inform you of the impact of your donation and our evolving needs, priorities and initiatives and how you make a difference in the lives of Salford students, staff and the world.  For information see the University’s annual report and financial statements.

Your Expectations:

We will adhere to fundraising best practices as outlined in our Gift Acceptance Policy. And you will always have access to the University’s most recent published financial accounts.

Your Recognition:

We are proud of our donors and may publish your name, course and year of graduation, and when appropriate the purpose for which you donated. If you want to remain anonymous, please inform us and every effort will be made to respect your wishes.

Your Questions:

We will respond promptly to any inquiry or question.
