Let's fundraise

You can fundraise for one of our flagship scholarships as well as our newly launched Mentally Fit York fund to help recognise the odds that students have overcome to get to York and to support on the ground mental health initiatives as well as the latest groundbreaking research taking place here at York.

Whether you’re planning your own event, or taking part in someone else’s, there are so many things that you can do to reach your target and make a difference to the lives of students at York, and you will be supported every step of the way.

Your fundraising is vital in ensuring that we can continue to support students who apply to our scholarships but don't receive them because there's simply not enough money to go around. Please take on a fundraising challenge and help students not just now, but for years to come.

“If you’re going to live, leave a legacy."

Step back in time and read about the lives of some of our amazing alumni. Our legacy newsletter is the place where you can reminisce about your time on campus, as it features beautiful photos of the university throughout the decades, whilst allowing us to pay tribute and remember some of our generous donors who have left a gift in their Will. 

The University of York is immensely grateful for the generosity of its legacy benefactors and the life-changing opportunities only made possible by the incredible donations made in their Will. Read about their stories in the third edition of our Legacy Newsletter.
