Donate to support research
UC research has a positive impact on society in Aotearoa New Zealand and overseas every year through research that is undertaken for the public benefit and funded by donations from individuals and organisations. Examples in the last 12 months include arable research into rye grass, cancer treatments and microbiology, mental health and nutrition research, and waterways research.
Your gift to Te Whare Wānanga o Waitaha | The University of Canterbury will ensure that UC continues to provide vital services in our community and a world-class learning experience for students.
