Donor Appreciation Day 2015

The University’s second annual Donor Appreciation Day was held on 12 February 2015, to which all local donors were invited. The event was attended by students who benefit from scholarships that are provided through philanthropic giving, including our 2014 Alumni Postgraduate Research Scholar Jamie Wickham-Eade, Music Scholar Ruth Webster and Christine & Ian Bolt Scholar Michael Mills. Photographs of the event can be seen on our flickr gallery.

Staff from the Centre for Philanthropy also attended the reception, as well as University Archivist Ann MacDonald, who provided archive materials relating to the University’s first fundraising campaign in June 1965.

The event was an informal opportunity for the University to warmly thank those who have supported Kent students in the last academic year. In 2013/2014, over £1.3million was donated by over 1,200 individuals to a range of projects across the University which directly benefit our students, including the Kent Law Campaign and the Kent Opportunity Fund.
