Transformational Gifts





Transform a Life.

A transformational gift can have a significant and sustained impact on the lives of Northumbria University students. By funding multi-year scholarships, student opportunities or larger scale campus developments, you could help to shape the future of the University and its students. 

For some, making a transformational gift is a way of giving back to the University, ensuring others have the opportunity to experience the same things they did. For others, donating to Northumbria represents an opportunity to give back while also furthering an area of personal interest to them. 

Since graduating from Northumbria University, alumnus Wee Teng Woon and the Woon Brothers Foundation have given generously to the University in a number of ways, most recently by supporting the opening of the Woon Gallery of Asian Art and funding the Woon Foundation Painting and Sculpture prize. 

‘Giving to Northumbria is my way of showing appreciation and gratitude and appreciation to the teachers and friends that treated me with such kindness many years ago.’

Wee Teng Woon, LLB (Hons) Law, 1981

Criminology graduate and prison philanthropist Lady Edwina Grosvenor funds a studentship in the area of prison and prison reform. 

"Funding a PhD studentship is my way of giving back and saying thank you, by helping someone who might not have had the opportunity otherwise. I like to think that through this I am inspiring others in an area that I am passionate about”

Lady Edwina Grosvenor, BSc (Hons) Criminology & Sociology, 2004

If you choose to make a gift of this nature to the University, the Advancement Team will work closely with you to identify a project that reflects your own interests and motivations. We will also discuss how you would like your gift to be recognised and how you would like to be kept informed of the impact your gift has made.
