The Aston Annual Fund (AAF) is a fundraising initiative designed to inspire and direct the support of our alumni, staff and friends. Through the AAF, our supporters are able to make a real difference to today’s generation of students, ensuring that those who have followed in their footsteps reap the rewards of a high quality education.
We believe that by working together we can ensure that Aston continues to attract the best and brightest and that we are able to provide our students with an outstanding university experience that will serve them throughout their lives.
Gifts to the AAF help us improve teaching facilities and invest in new technologies, fund scholarships for our most talented students and bursaries for those in need. The AAF is also able to offer much needed investment to the Students’ Union, helping them construct new study areas and provide students with extracurricular outlets, such as sport and entrepreneurial initiatives.
Your gift can support an area of the University to which you feel most attached or an area which you feel is a priority.
You can choose to support the Annual Fund in a number of different ways. Giving by Direct Debit is particularly helpful, as it provides us with a regular monthly income that allows us to plan effectively for the future, and allows a donor to spread their gift over the course of a year. This is of particular importance when establishing scholarship awards. Of course, gifts of any size are welcomed and are greatly appreciated by everyone at the University.
The easiest way to make a gift it to visit our website at www.aston.ac.uk/donate and use our secure, online giving service to set up a Direct Debit, or make a gift using your credit or debit card. We also accept gifts made by PayPal.
You can make a donation using your credit or debit card, or set up a Direct Debit, by telephone. Simply call 0121 204 3021.

You can increase the value of your donation by submitting a Gift Aid declaration. If you are a UK tax payer, Gift Aid increases the size of your donation by 25% at no extra expense or inconvenience to yourself. The effect of Gift Aid is referenced on the reverse of the donation form.
