The Loughborough Experience
Donations to wherever the need is greatest support any areas across the University that are in vital need of funds. Unrestricted gifts are particularly valuable as they allow us to respond flexibly and support projects which otherwise may not receive funding.
Examples of areas which have been made possible thanks to gifts from our alumni and friends are:
- Victim Support Outreach Centre - based at the Students’ Union, the centre ensures there is a strong support system in place in case any students become victims of crime.
- Hall Common Room Refurbishments - thanks to our alumni, grants were awarded to Elvyn Richards, Falkner Eggington, Robert Bakewell and Rutherford halls last year to make essential refurbishments.
- Open Door: Skills for Successful Employment - this joint project between the Counselling and Disability Service and the Careers Network provided workshops and employment advice for disabled students.
Since 2002, this fund, also known as the Loughborough Fund, has supported over 200 different projects.
Your generosity and support makes life that much better for our students, especially those in need, giving them a helping hand on the road to success.
