Giving to Teesside

‘We rise by lifting others.’

Teesside University was founded with a gift – in 1930 Joseph Constantine gave £80,000 to found the college which through the success and talent of its students grew into the thriving University it is today.

Continuing this tradition Teesside University still benefits from the generosity of its friends and donors who give their time, money and expertise to help the next generation.

Philanthropy – changing lives

Our development vision is to find, inspire and nurture talent. Talent takes many forms and is expressed in many ways. Teesside University harnesses the generosity of its friends and supporters to develop skills and experiences that equip students with all they need to succeed. Informed by excellence in teaching, research and facilities, our development vision places good citizenship and long-term economic growth for the region at its heart.

Philanthropic gifts are increasingly important in enabling us to enhance our student learning experience. Donations give us the opportunity to aspire to contribute new knowledge, provide our students with an enriched learning experiences and to continually improve our award-winning campus.

Our donors come from all walks of life and their gifts are used to support the University in many ways. They can allow us to respond flexibly to the area of greatest need, or they may be directed to areas of the University which reflect specific concerns, passions and interests. Our staff also give back to their University through the Every Penny Helps campaign.
