Since its establishment in 1998, Galway University Foundation has been engaged in generating financial support for NUI Galway’s programmes and activities from a range of private individuals and institutions. A core part of our work is in nurturing lasting relationships with donors who share NUI Galway’s vision for the future.
NUI Galway is poised to spend €250 million over the next five years in an investment programme that will make dramatic advances in education for the next generation. A major fundraising initiative entitled the People & Place Campaign was publicly launched in 2004 to secure €50 million in private support toward this goal. The Campaign is comprised of 24 projects organised into eight themes reflecting the broader social, economic and cultural environment in which the University operates. In the links that follow, you can read much about our plans for the future and our progress to date as we share the stories of donors past and present.
