The University of Stirling Staff Charities Fund supports causes which offer help to people in the local area, in Scotland, in the UK and worldwide.
Each year we give around £15,000 to emergency appeals and to humanitarian organisations such as the Strathcarron Hospice, Alzheimer Scotland, Macmillan Cancer Support, the Joliba Trust, Oxfam, UNICEF - and many more. All the individual charities are nominated by the Fund’s membership.
The Fund also provides sums totalling thousands of pounds for relief and assistance to people in need around the world, usually via the Disasters Emergency Committee. Some recent examples include:
You can give as much or as little as you want.
Each year, membership of the Staff Charities Fund allows you to nominate a charity to receive a donation.
To continue this important work, the scheme needs new members to join and because your contribution is taken directly from the monthly payroll before tax, you pay no tax on your donation and the Fund receives the full amount.
