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.

PLEASE NOTE that donations made via Virgin Money Giving are subject to a 3.5% transaction fee which will be deducted from the total you have donated.  If you would like 100% of your gift to go to UCT Trust, please consider adding an extra 3.5% to the amount you would like the UCT Trust to receive.
