Our donors are truly amazing, and amongst our donors in the United Kingdom (UK) and Ireland are many, many Maties who are giving generously to support their alma mater and students through bursaries and other support to ensure that all students at Stellenbosch University have access to whatever is needed to be successful.
Between January and November 2022, our Maties, friends and donors in the UK and Ireland have donated more than R25m to various projects and bursaries at Stellenbosch University. I am humbled by the generosity of our donors and if you have not yet become one of our donors, it is never too late to give and make a difference – one Matie to another!
You can make a tax incentive gift to Stellenbosch University through the Stellenbosch University SA Foundation UK (Charity # 1107297). For UK taxpayers, your gift is even topped up with an additional 25% by His Majesty's Revenue and Customs (HMRC) if you Gift Aid it. No donation is too small to make a difference.

If you or your company would like to be more substantially involved in supporting bursaries at Stellenbosch University, then please email me and we can arrange a meeting to find out what you had in mind and how we can match your giving need to a priority project at Stellenbosch University.
If you are like some of our Maties, such as those mentioned in my opening article who cycled the London to Brighton, you may want to be part of the 2023 London to Brighton Maties Cycle Team, and raise funds through cycling, then drop me an email and I will give you the information you need to register.
Thank you, Maties. You are all amazing and incredible individuals and together we can make a difference to our country and her future, the youth, and the Maties of tomorrow.
