Support Manchester Students

Here at Manchester, we believe that every student should have access to a world-class education, regardless of their social or financial background.

Manchester has always been a place where bright, talented people can fulfil their potential – no matter where they come from. In fact, one in four Manchester undergraduates grew up in a low-income household. It’s one of the things that makes Manchester special.

The pandemic has been tough for students everywhere. They’ve worked incredibly hard in exceptionally difficult circumstances. And they have persevered through unimaginable disruption to their education.

Thanks to gifts from generous donors across the world, bright students from disadvantaged backgrounds are receiving financial help to study at Manchester. But many more students will need support in the coming year. They truly deserve this chance to follow their dreams.

As a member of our Manchester community in the USA, you can help to increase the financial support on offer to students at your University. By making a tax-deductible gift to the North American Foundation for the University of Manchester (NAFUM), you’ll fund scholarships, to help talented people join us at Manchester. And by doing that, you’ll make sure that students from disadvantaged backgrounds are given every opportunity to succeed.

By making a donation today, you’ll give Manchester students the opportunity fulfil their potential tomorrow.

Thank you.


The North American Foundation for The University of Manchester (NAFUM) is an independent, not-for-profit corporation dedicated to charitable and educational purposes (ref no. 31-1598015). Gifts made to NAFUM qualify for a charitable contribution reduction on your tax return.
