Creating a better tomorrow

Find your cause

Thanks to the very generous support of many donors and partners, we have been able to fund a wide range of projects in recent years – from excavating historic shipwrecks and delivering world-leading academic research, to creating state-of-the-art new learning facilities and supporting students through the major financial impact of COVID-19.

We are fundraising for a wide range of important and exciting projects. You can find out more about our current priorities below – and please do get in touch via [email protected] if you have any questions or would like further information.
