With a team of 20, the Trust is responsible for supporting the University in its fundraising ambitions for the future. Building on the success of The Sixth Century Campaign in 2010 which raised £150 million and a further £79 million that has been raised since, the Trust is preparing for the launch of a new campaign that will leverage support from our incredibly generous family of alumni and supporters across the world.
