Welcome to About Us

The Donor Relations office coordinates all fundraising activities in support of the strategic, priority and community outreach projects of the University.​


 About Us

Few academic institutions can survive on revenue from student registrations and fees alone and are dependent on regular and sustained funding to thrive. Thus the Donor Relations office is integral to creating and maintaining a solid partnership with current and prospective donors. 

The Donor Relations office is relatively new, having been established in 2012 within the Department of Institutional Advancement; Donor Relations is aimed at building strong, longlasting and mutually beneficial partnerships.

The Donor Relations Office works in concert with academic departments, research chairs and centres to provide professional fundraising services aimed at increasing third stream income for the University. We do so by providing various services including strategic project support, Proposal Writing and Editing, Donor/Prospect profiling and Prospect searches. 

We also organise related functions and events and oversee the monitoring and tracking of donations, among others.
