At UCT, we believe that by implementing quality projects, we can make a significant impact on some of the big challenges facing society. Issues such as poverty and inequality, climate change, gender violence, and schools education require targeted interventions guided by innovative insights. As the highest ranked university in Africa it is our role to address these in a way that will make a tangible difference.

Gifts from alumni and friends of the university are key to making up the critical shortfall in state funding that all South African universities, including UCT, face. We cannot accomplish our fundraising goals without your support.

Should you wish to make a donation, you can:

You can also consider making a bequest to the university, and leave a lasting legacy that way. All donations to UCT are tax deductible under Section 18A of the Income Tax Act as amended.

Contact Deidre Adams to find out more about our strategic fundraising priorities, and how your gift will improve the lives of students and the communities we serve.

Your support of these initiatives can enable UCT to remain responsive to the social, economic and environmental challenges of our time.
