Throughout the six weeks of calling and 18 calling shifts, the dedicated team of student callers facilitated a remarkable 1150 conversations.

A total of 169 donors contributed to the campaign, highlighting the generosity of the University of York community, and the funds raised will have a profound impact on the university's various philanthropic initiatives.

The generous contributions will be allocated towards several vital causes: providing support for students from disadvantaged backgrounds as part of our York Opportunity Scholarships and York Futures Scholarship, enabling asylum seeking students to access a York education with our Equal Access Scholarship, offering financial support for student societies via YuFund, and helping transform mental health in York and beyond.

The University of York extends its thanks to the excellent team of student callers and the generosity of its alumni and donors. It looks forward to continuing to make a difference in the lives of its students and the broader community.
