Friends & Supporters

From its foundation in 1875, Queen Margaret’s alumni, staff, parents, and friends have assured our University’s success through their generous philanthropic support. You can see details of donations on our benefactor wall.

The reasons people give to QMU are as numerous and diverse as the donors themselves. For some, it is a ‘thank you’ for changing their lives or someone’s close to them. For others, it may represent an opportunity to support favoured programmes and departments because of their belief in what students in these areas will contribute to society. One thing is certain: your generosity is a measure of our success.

Gifts to QMU impact all areas of the University. New buildings, scholarships, prizes, equipment purchases and endowments are just a few of the ways private gifts improve the quality of QMU’s portfolio. You can direct your gift to the area that means the most to you or make an unrestricted gift that goes straight to the heart of the University having an impact at any given time where it is needed most.

Support, whether large or small, will have an immensely positive influence on QMU’s legacy from educating bright young minds to take on the challenges of tomorrow to pursuing innovative research addressing world issues. See our short film on QMU which captures the impact of just two areas of our work – speech and international health or read testimonials in which our supporters indicate what motivated them to give to QMU.
