UCD is truly a global university. Our richly diverse and multicultural community reflects the best of modern Ireland and what we have to offer the world. UCD is the university of first choice for an increasing number of Irish and international students seeking a world-class educational experience that will prepare them to take on the challenges of the future with courage and creativity.

I cannot overstate the importance of philanthropy to UCD’s success now and in the future. The continuing and exceptional generosity of our supporters enables us to excel as a scholarly community, to support our students to fulfil their potential, and to bring about positive societal change through impactful research and innovation. Thanks to the generosity of all our donors, we are progressively realising our vision for a campus that supports collaborative and creative approaches to research and education, with the flexibility to adapt to the complexities of providing an outstanding educational experience in a post-pandemic environment.

With the help of our supporters, I am confident that UCD will not only remain resilient amidst the turbulence of the global political, social and economic landscape, but will continue to flourish and thrive.

I invite you to contact our team if you have any questions about how you can help support UCD students, researchers, and campus. In the meantime, sincere thanks for your interest in UCD Foundation.
