Commit to Educational Excellence in the Caribbean by Donating to the UWI

I believe I can speak on behalf of all alumni of this University - and there are now more than 180,000 living all over the world – when I say how personally proud I am of The University of the West Indies and everything it has given me: a great education, cherished friendships and exceptional opportunities in my professional and community activities. I hope that in reading this, you will see how important philanthropic gifts, both large and small, are and will realize that every person or business who supports The UWI, whether graduate, student, friend, parent, corporation or foundation, shares in its success.

Private support funding plays a critical role in helping The University of the West Indies meet needs fundamental to its mission – from research funding to library support to classroom and technological improvements, to student financial aid. We invite you to donate your time, share your talent and contribute your resources. The excellence that happens at the UWI occurs largely because of the care and support of so many people. The Institutional Advancement Division Team believes that, in today’s world, there is no greater cause that the advancement of higher education and knowledge and we invite you to show support and help launch and maintain a strong tradition of philanthropy.
