Building on the legacy of Newman

From Newman, to the UCD graduates of today, University College Dublin has led the way in every sphere of Irish life through ground-breaking research, scholarship and innovation, and by providing education and professional training to generations of outstanding graduates and leaders of Irish society. UCD now consistently leads as the university of first choice for Irish school leavers, having witnessed a surge in applications from high achieving students. It is now Ireland’s leading producer of PhD students

UCD Foundation Ltd is UCD’s preferred destination for all private donations.  If you would like to learn more about UCD’s Fundraising Campaigns  or have an idea that would advance any of our fundraising and development programmes, please contact a member of the UCD Foundation team.

Trusts and Foundations are an increasingly important source of funding for UCD. UCD Foundation aims to foster mutually beneficial links between the University and international trusts and foundations.

In addition, UCD Foundation supports UCD alumni events and communications in conjunction with UCD Alumni Relations and UCD President’s Office.

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.
