Welcome to The Donor Relations Office

As the fundraising arm of the Department of Institutional Advancement, the Donor Relations Office focuses on building sustainable partnerships by increasing donor support through diverse communication and marketing strategies.​



 Donor Relations


After a hiatus of approximately four years in which no formal fundraising took place, the newly established Donor Relations Office was established in 2012 as part of the Department of Institutional Advancement (IA). The newly established Donor Relations Office operates in alignment with the University’s IOP objective number 6: ‘To shape the internal and external standing and profile of UWC as a vibrant Institution through the use of diverse communication and marketing strategies to support our goals’

The Donor Relations Office aims to build sustainable partnerships for institutional advancement by increasing donor support. This is guided by the newly approved Fundraising and Proposals Policy and managed through realistic fundraising and stewardship initiatives. This policy further aims to streamline and centralise fundraising activities at UWC while also assisting the process of prioritising projects, stewardship, monitoring and evaluation and reporting obligations to donors.
