Giving Day 2022, the Warwick community’s annual online fundraising challenge, was a great success, with 260 of you raising £182,673.75 for students, research and the arts at Warwick.
Areas of greatest need and student support attracted the highest number of donations, 110 and 91 respectively. You can find more facts and figures from the day here.
Second year Law student and Scholar Ambassador, Iqra Ahmed, said: “On behalf of all the students who will be supported by alumni and friends’ generosity on Giving Day, I’d like to say thank you. Your gifts will genuinely change lives by supporting young people from less privileged backgrounds throughout their University journey. From helping school pupils access higher education to providing scholarships, internships and volunteering opportunities, your support will make a huge impact.”
Thank you to everyone who shared stories about Warwick for Giving Day, it was wonderful to be able to feature you on the website.
Loyal donor Rudolf Albert (MSc Maths, 1977-78), who kindly gave £4,000 to student support on the day, was just one alumnus who shared his thoughts.
“When thinking of Warwick, I recall cherished memories - the relaxed atmosphere in the Maths building at Gibbet Hill, with intense academic exchanges during tea times, my caring supervisor and the wide variety of sports opportunities, the diversity of the student body and of course the Student Union,” he said.
Thank you again to all Giving Day supporters.
