Support us

Sussex has torn up the rule book since 1961, blending disparate disciplines to create world-leading research breakthroughs, and encouraging students from all backgrounds to graduate with both a world-class degree and a social conscience.

Make our 60th extra special

In this special anniversary year, we invite all members of our community to celebrate this legacy and pay it forward by making a gift at a level that you feel comfortable with.

Your support will help us to continue transforming the lives of future Sussex students, by giving everyone access to a Sussex education – reflecting our shared commitment to social justice, equality and academic excellence.

Give to the Sussex Fund

Help students get the most out of their time at Sussex and fulfil their true potential, regardless of their background or financial circumstances, by making a gift to the Sussex Fund.

During our anniversary year, new regular donations up to a total value of £1,000 will be matched, thanks to a generous and forward-thinking legacy donation.

Watch our video below to see the difference that donations to the Sussex Fund can make to the life of a student.

Becoming a mentor has helped me to expand my horizon... the idea that we get to be part of someone else’s life and help them to succeed early on should be considered a privilege. PRATEEK SUREKA
