    Welcome to the UKZN Foundation’s website.

    A hallmark of the University of KwaZulu-Natal is the wonderful sense of community that is made up of individuals doing remarkable things to impact the lives of so many. At the Foundation, we’re leading the charge to build a lifelong culture of engagement and philanthropy that advances the mission of a truly South African University of Choice that is academically excellent, innovative in research, entrepreneurial, while critically engaging with society, and building relationships and connections within and beyond the UKZN community in meaningful ways to maximise the donor impact for the University.

    For years, your philanthropic support has provided critical financial resources that have assisted with funds to support students, our colleges and various programmes across the University, creating unique enrichment opportunities for our students to learn and develop critical skills that will strengthen them as they move on to new endeavours. For this, we say “Thank You!”

    My colleagues and I consider it an honour and a privilege to work with and alongside you as we continue advancing UKZN. We welcome the opportunity to talk with you about how you can help us ensure a brighter future for our students, our University and the greater global community.

    Mr Steve Camp

    Executive Director
