YuFund gives support to students where and when they need it most. From individual awards to the innovative projects that help set York apart, gifts of all sizes together make the biggest change.

Thanks to you, we’ve been able to deliver, record and share weekly speaker and debate events attended by hundreds of students, staff and members of the public. You’ve helped us to go from strength to strength.

York Union

Through YuFund you can back projects and opportunities that:

  • help students to reach their potential in their studies, career development and participation
  • benefit the University or the wider York community.

About half of YuFund goes directly to projects run by student teams – gaining experience and responsibilities sought after by employers. Our students have the great ideas and the energy and enthusiasm to improve the York experience for everyone.

How YuFund helps

  • Student teams apply to YuFund to support their inspirational projects.
  • Grants are allocated twice a year by a group of staff, students and alumni – each a donor to the University.
  • YuFund also supports bursaries and scholarships targeted where the need is greatest.
  • Gifts to YuFund give us the flexibility to direct support where it is most needed.
