Enriching Students' Lives - Legacy Giving

Northumbria University students' have benefitted from the genorosity of our friends and supporters from legacy giving. Here is an example of the range and impact of legacy giving.

Warwick Stafford

Warwick Stafford was a Fine Art Alumnus who kindly left a legacy gift to mark the "happiest days" of his life at Newcastle Polytechnic and the "sense of fellowship" he found here. Two gifts were created in his honour

The Warwick Stafford Fellowship was aimed at early to mid career practitioners in Fine Art.  The Fellowship, hosted by Northumbria at BALTIC 39, offers artists a structured opportunity to advance their practice and research for a twelve-month period whilst engaging with a stimulating community of professional artists, students, Fine Art Researchers and the BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art partners.The Warwick Stafford Art Prize supported Fine Art students through their studies at Northumbria University.

David Henry

David Henry was passionate about English, History and all things Shakespeare. In later life he came to Northumbria to study Humanities and in doing so achieved a life-time ambition. When David passed away, his family decided to pay tribute to him by making a donation to the University library, enabling it to expand its collection in his favourite subject areas.
