Philanthropic Partnerships and Alumni

The Office of Philanthropic Partnerships and Alumni (OPPA) works with a community of global donors including individual philanthropists, family trusts, foundations and corporations and our alumni community.

Our approach is change-driven and collaborative. We invite supporters to be part of the University of York community and to find new ways to tackle inequalities, new ways for research to help society, and new ways to help every student succeed.

What OPPA does

OPPA is responsible for:

  • Philanthropic Partnerships, by providing support to our academic community and priority programmes at York to raise philanthropic support. This includes the University of York in America 501(c)(3).
  • York Unlimitedwhich is our current institutional campaign fundraising and volunteering Campaigns.
  • York Global Alumni Association, the official alumni group for the University of York. You are considered to be an alum of the University if you have graduated or retired from the University.
