YuFund exists thanks to the generosity of alumni and friends. It gives grants to innovative and worthwhile projects run by student clubs and societies, departments and colleges.

To get YuFund backing for your project, you must complete an application by the deadline (5 November 2017). The YuFund Disbursement Group will then consider your application and give you their decision.

What YuFund supports

YuFund backs projects that:

  • help students to reach their potential – in their studies, employability or participation
  • meet a clear need of students or staff
  • benefit the University or the wider York community.

See recent examples of successful YuFund applicants here: YuFund projects.

Due to limited funds, YuFund cannot support every application it receives. Please make sure your application is as strong and well-presented as possible. You can get advice on your application by attending a fundraising workshop.
