Provost's View: Philanthropy month – setting the scene for UCL’s philanthropic campaign

I have alluded to the forthcoming UCL philanthropic Campaign in numerous Provost’s Views over the last year or two. I want to reflect on this topic in more depth this week so that all staff at UCL are kept well informed about this key aspect of implementing UCL 2034. This coincides with the start of Philanthropy Month, which began with the annual Scholarships and Bursaries Reception on Monday and which will conclude with Philanthropy Day on 29th February– a celebration of the importance and impact of giving (money, time, and expertise) to UCL. This is the first milestone in a busy year for fundraising and supporter engagement that will culminate in the Campaign launch in Bloomsbury this September.
