This would support ‘The Nottingham Experience’, health and well-being, nurturing talent, ingenuity and sustainable futures. So far the campaign was raised £81 million.The Vice-Chancellor, Professor David Greenaway, said: “This is an incredible start and I want to thank everyone who continues to support us either financially or in-kind. We have reached this point with some very significant corporate commitments, such as the recent gift from GlaxoSmithKline as well as major gifts from alumni like Campaign Co-Chair, David Ross (Law 1987).

Regular gifts from our alumni and friends maintain a long-standing tradition which goes way back to the time when we relocated from the city to our wonderful University Park Campus back in 1928.”University staff have contributed, with more than 400 signing up to donate via payroll giving. More than 130 of the University’s student telephone fundraisers have also donated an hour of their pay to help provide scholarships and bursaries for future Nottingham students.The campaign is expanding globally, with the University establishing two charitable foundations to support the work of the China and Malaysia campuses.www.nottingham.ac.uk/impactcampaign About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.
