Thank You

Your donations and gifts of time and expertise over the last year have had a remarkable impact on the future of our students, our campus and our research.

Access to opportunity is at the heart of what we do together.  Whether that’s opening doors through mentorship, or through grant or scholarship funding, your investment helps people to follow their dreams.  Thank you.

In this edition we’re delighted to share good news about the Equal Access Scholarship that Butshilo Nleya receives read more…. And to share his words

I am glad to be able to thank you personally.  I am grateful that such a life changing opportunity has been afforded to me. Being persecuted for my beliefs and work and becoming an asylum-seeker stripped me of my dignity and self-esteem.  Your belief in me has literally given me a new lease of life, together with my family and I look forward to a good Bachelor’s degree.  The prospect of University was daunting but now, through your generosity I envisage a time when my children will look at my achievements at York and wherever else life takes me, with pride.

We also shine a light on some of the other collaborations that your support makes possible and invite you to spread the word about the impact of giving to York by sharing your favourite stories.

It is my huge pleasure to wish you every good wish for Christmas and the holiday season and to look forward to what we can achieve together next year.

“Thank you”
