The Friends' Fund

The newly established Friends’ Fund is a way for former and retired staff to give back to the University of Hertfordshire. The Friends’ organising committee will decide the area of the University that will be the beneficiary of funds raised.

For the 2020/21 academic year, the chosen fund is the University Student Trust Fund. In the wake of COVID-19, financial support for our most financially disadvantaged students is more important than ever. Money donated to the University Student Trust Fund is directed to wherever student need is greatest, with the majority of funds going to the Student Hardship Fund.

We are happy to accept either one-off (by online payment or cheque) or regular direct debit donations. Gift Aid is also applicable on these donations, if you are an eligible UK tax payer.

To set up a donation, please click on the appropriate button and select ‘Friends Society Fund’.

For those wishing to stay more involved with the University, there are opportunities to volunteer to support the UH Arts events programme. As a volunteer you set your own level of commitment and have the chance to benefit from complimentary tickets for our fantastic events.

You can also apply to be on the UHCasual bank of casual staff and help to support the University’s key events and activities throughout the year.

Leaving a legacy

Remembering the University of Hertfordshire in your will can provide continuing support to future generations of students, providing support for many students in need through the financial assistance fund, or even by providing a scholarship.
