For over 500 years the University of Aberdeen has benefited from generous philanthropic giving which has enabled us to enhance our campus, advance our teaching and research, and grow a multicultural community.

The University of Aberdeen Development Trust SCIO, a charity registered in Scotland, no SC050996, was founded with the sole purpose of attracting charitable donations to provide benefit to the University of Aberdeen. It is governed by a board of Trustees whose decisions regarding the expenditure of funds attracted by the Trust are made independently of the University. 

The University of Aberdeen Development Trust SCIO receives generous support through donations and gifts in kind from our worldwide family of alumni, friends and benefactors to support the University's ambitions.

To join our family of supporters please contact us on +44 (0) 1224 272281 or by email at giving@abdn.ac.uk.
