University Of Cape Town Trust
Who we are
The University of Cape Town Trust raises funds in the UK and Europe for the University of Cape Town, South Africa's premier university.
Funds raised in the UK support bursaries to help young talented students from profoundly disadvantaged backgrounds to live and learn at UCT. Without financial aid, so much of the talent now emerging from the townships and rural areas of South Africa will be wasted. These are the young people who will ultimately make valuable contributions to South Africa's future. Every penny raised can make an enormous difference to the lives of South Africans - not only the lives of the bursary students, but also the lives of their families.
Funds raised in the UK also help to build capacity to ensure that the quality of teaching and research continues to align with UCT's mission for excellence, and allows UCT to be a globally recognised University.
