The University of Cape Town Trust is a UK registered charitable trust which raises funds and support for UCT in the UK and other parts of Europe.

Established in London in 1991 by Vice Chancellor Dr Stuart Saunders, the Trust has raised over £20 million for projects at UCT from Foundations, companies and individuals. The majority of the UCT Trust’s Board of Trustees are eminent UCT alumni.

If you are resident in the UK, you can make a tax effective donation to UCT through the UCT Trust. Please see the UCT Trust website for more details.

The UCT Trust also organises events for UCT alumni based in the UK. Please see the UCT alumni events calendar to find out about upcoming events near you.

To ensure you receive invitations to future events, please send your email address - and those of any other UCT alumni you know in the UK - to Angela Edwards.

We look forward to hearing from you!
