Fundraising




Fundraising is very important for the School. We do not currently receive direct central funding from HEFCE or the Government and so cannot access capital grants or other project funding from these two sources.

In acknowledgment of the importance of fundraising, the Board has a Fundraising Committee which oversees the strategic direction of fundraising.




Opening Hours

The Core Opening Hours of the Fundraising Department are:

Monday - Friday
9:00am - 5:00pm

Fundraising Successes

Recent examples of fundraising successes include covering the capital costs of the School’s new student ICT suite, which created 46 workstations with virtualised desktops. This enhanced the School’s existing high quality ICT provision for students. The School also received money from the Department of Health via an application to the Social Enterprise and Investment Fund (SEIF) to upgrade the clinic booking system to improve patient access and patient data collection.




Award-Winning Community Clinics

Another aspect of the School’s work that is supported by fundraising is the award-winning portfolio of Community Clinics where students treat less-advantaged patients in a variety of settings. This work has been supported by a range of trusts and foundations, including:

- The Stavros Niarchos Foundation

- The Elton John Aids Foundation

- The Tudor Trust

- The Peter Moores Foundation.

This work has been recognised both locally and nationally with the School being nominated for Charity of the Year by The Charity Times in 2010 and winning the Outstanding Contribution to the Local Community award at the 2012 Times Higher Education Awards.




How to Support the School's Fundraising Activities

There are many ways that our staff and students can support the School’s fundraising activities:

Raise sponsorship money for the BSO’s community clinics against an activity you’re undertaking.
Get involved with School events and activities with the Fundraising Team.
Use the easyfundraising link when ordering from a range of retailers (including for Amazon and other major stores) so that the School gets a referral donation.
Identify patient stories that tell a powerful tale – applications to trusts are always enhanced when we can talk about the impact of the work that we do on the patients we serve.
Talk to people about the BSO – tell patients, friends and family about the charitable work we do and if appropriate, put them in touch if they want to get involved.
Join the 500 Club – a fantastic group of our alumni who donate £42 per month (£500 per year) to support our work.
Get involved with the Fundraising Committee to share your ideas.

Please contact the Corporate Services Director or Fundraising Assistant about your ideas for fundraising, and get involved!
