General Purpose Fund
Wherever the need is greatest
Our students and staff have brilliant ideas. Help make them a reality.
Having the freedom to invest in creative and innovative ideas that have an immediate impact is crucial to a university aspiring to offer the best student experience possible. The alumni fund offers support to initiatives that will have a significant impact on the campus environment, teaching and learning facilities, and activities available to enhance the student experience at DMU.
You can offer support by donating to a specific 'live' project through our crowdfunding platform, DMUtransform, or alternatively you can allow us the freedom to direct your gift to wherever the need is greatest. Such gifts are particularly valuable as they give us the ability to respond flexibly and to allocate funds where they are needed most at the time they are received, allowing us to take advantage of new opportunities, which we may otherwise have to forego.

- Hardship bursaries to support students facing financial difficulties;
- Support for student clubs and societies;
- 'Matchfunding' for DMUtransform projects;
- Scholarships to enable students from low income backgrounds to study at DMU;
