The Distinguishing UCT Campaign aims to grow UCT’s general endowment, as well as the respective endowments of key faculty priorities.
It is crucial for UCT to seek long-term solutions towards financial stability, and a strong endowment will provide a predictable and stable source of income which will underwrite UCT’s ability to work towards its vision and mission:
To advance excellence by providing catalytic funding for strategic research and teaching programmes
To invest in talent by providing more financial aid for students from impoverished backgrounds
To realise transformation by creating an institutional culture that is affirming for all who come to the university, and a demographic profile that reflects the democratic transition that has taken place in South Africa.
We call upon all alumni around the world to help build UCT’s endowment by making a contribution to Distinguishing UCT, and help secure UCT’s tradition of scholarly distinction for the many generations still to come.
