UC Foundation (NZ)

Make a difference to present and future UC students and staff

The University of Canterbury Foundation is dedicated to ensuring that the University of Canterbury's tradition of excellence in higher education continues. From its earliest beginnings in 1873, philanthropic support and the generosity of donors and supporters has played a major part in making the university the respected institution it is today. The UC Foundation is dedicated to continuing that tradition.

Our Mission

  • To support the University of Canterbury in its quest for excellence and international reputation in education and research by creating mutually beneficial partnerships and opportunities for giving.
  • We seek donations, bequests, sponsorships and partnerships from individuals and organisations to support students, teachers, researchers and programmes at the University of Canterbury.

Established in 2001, the University of Canterbury Foundation is an independent charitable trust. The Foundation is registered as a charity with the Department of Internal Affairs (registration number CC27669).

Primary goal and governance

Our primary goal is to provide opportunities for individuals and organisations to support the educational mission of the university through donations, bequests, sponsorships and partnerships.

The Foundation is governed by a Board of Trustees who utilise their expertise, knowledge, skills and contacts to provide oversight of the Foundation's activities, raise funds and secure the resources required.

However you choose to support - and at whatever level - your generosity is both essential and truly appreciated.

Every gift counts.
