UCD Foundation was established in 1997 to advance the strategic goals and objectives of University College Dublin under the direction of an independent Board of Directors.
The Foundation’s primary functions are to generate financial support for research and teaching, to fundraise for development programmes and to support academic initiatives.
Since 1998, UCD Foundation has raised in excess of €90 Million in support of the development of UCD. The challenge today is to position the university to facilitate a new wave of Ireland’s development in the highly competitive and globalised 21st Century. To this end, UCD relies on our support and the extraordinary support of her alumni, donors and friends to help it achieve its mission.
