Vice-Chancellor's Giving Circle

overview of Penglais campus and surrounding countryside

The Vice-Chancellor’s Giving Circle is a way of showing our appreciation and recognition of the transformative impact £1,000 can have – collectively and individually.


"Aberystwyth University was founded on the generosity of those who believed in the power of education to transform lives.  My Giving Circle builds on the philanthropic principles of the past to ensure the students of today and the scholars of the future are given the brightest of opportunities."

Professor Elizabeth Treasure, Vice-Chancellor

Donors who lead the way in philanthropy and make exceptional annual gifts of £1,000 or more within an academic year are welcomed into the Vice-Chancellor’s Giving Circle.

Inspired by the philanthropic support of so many since the University was founded in 1872, the Vice-Chancellor's Giving Circle has been established to recognise and thank the ongoing support of our donors around the world.

Every gift makes a difference and has a major impact on the lives of our students and the future of the University.
