UCD is committed to ensuring equality of access and opportunity for students. These values are shared by our alumni and donors, whose philanthropic support for the University via UCD Foundation helps to break down the barriers of social and economic disadvantage and provide life-changing educational opportunities for all UCD students.

Supporting students is a wonderful way for alumni to give back. It recognises the transformative power of education, and the value of investing in the skills and talents of the rising generations of innovators and thought leaders across the academic disciplines.
