Philanthropy in UK Higher Education: Reflecting on the last decade and forecasting to 2032

More & CASE

Invitation to contribute your experiences, reflections and advice

Survey closes 5pm 11 July 2023

Released in 2012, the Pearce Report looked back over the territory UK Higher Education had covered in philanthropy, surveyed the surrounding landscape, and looked ahead to expected progress in the decade to follow. You can see the report here

More Partnership is now working in collaboration with CASE to update this research - reflecting on the projections in the Pearce Report, and considering the next ten years for fundraising in UK higher education. The research will feature evidence-informed recommendations to help support an even stronger environment for higher education philanthropy. 

We are exploring fundraising data spanning the last decade based on CASE Insights on Philanthropy (United Kingdom and Ireland), formerly the CASE-Ross Survey, interviews with thought leaders and influencers across the sector, and learnings from outside the UK.

We are also inviting everyone across the HE advancement community to share their reflections and advice about higher education philanthropy via a short online survey.

Your views are shared in confidence, and findings will be aggregated; no comments will be attributed. The research will be shared at the CASE Europe Annual Conference, (29-31 August in Edinburgh).

Please contact Nik Miller at More Partnership (nmiller@morepartnership.com) or the CASE Insights team at insights@case.org for further information. Thank you in anticipation of your vital contributions to this research.
