How You Can Support Us – Bath Spa University

How You Can Support Us

Even after you graduate, there are many ways you can continue your relationship with Bath Spa – including your time and expertise – and supporting us financially to aid our students and help us grow.

Time and Expertise

By supporting the University with your time and talent, you can really make a difference. Volunteering is a rewarding experience and great way to give back to Bath Spa. You can also benefit by expanding your networks and further developing your skills

Speaking engagements

Share your knowledge and experience with fellow alumni and students looking for advice. If you're interested in speaking as part of a panel, giving a keynote speech, or participating in a networking event, we'd love to hear from you.

For more information or if you'd like to take part, please contact alumni@bathspa.ac.uk.

Mentoring

Pass on your invaluable experience to current students and fellow alumni, or find a Bath Spa mentor to take you to the next level.

If you feel you can help our students develop their skills as they move into the world of work why not find out more about our mentoring programme MentorMe.

If you need more information please contact us at alumni@bathspa.ac.uk.

Offer a work placement, graduate internship or a job opportunity

Can you offer a work placement? Are you looking to hire a great graduate? We would love to hear from you.

If you can offer a work placement, graduate internship, or job opportunity for students or alumni, please let us know at alumni@bathspa.ac.uk.

Become an Alumni Ambassador

We’re always looking for friendly faces willing to help us organise events, support alumni activity and give advice to newcomers in your area, regionally or nationally. Whether you're in the UK or living overseas, we'd love to hear from you.

Leaving a gift in your will

Leaving a gift in your will is often one of the most significant donations a person can make.

Whatever you want to achieve – supporting students, developing our campuses or investing in research, we can ensure that your gift has impact and achieves your vision.

We would welcome the opportunity to talk to you further about what we might be able to achieve together.

Gifts of shares, property or in kind

Giving shares is one of the most tax-effective ways of donating to Bath Spa University and can be a very financially beneficial way of supporting our students and enhancing our research.

Gifting art, property or services also has incredible potential to enhance the institution and what it can offer.

Support student crowdfunding

Crowdfunding can help our students get their projects off the ground, and Launch Pad is Bath Spa University’s crowdfunding website. We’ve created Launch Pad to give students and staff a platform to launch their creative or academic projects and business ideas, and to give alumni and friends of the University the opportunity to support projects that interest them.

Tax efficient giving

If you're a UK tax payer, you can make every £1 you give – or have given – worth 25p more, just by telling us. This is because the government’s Gift Aid scheme allows the University to reclaim tax on donations. This means that you can make an even bigger difference at no extra cost to you.

If you pay higher rate tax you can claim further tax relief in your Self Assessment tax return.
