Footsteps Fund: Free Funding!

Many of you may already know about the Footsteps Fund.  If not, it is a pot of money that is donated to the University from over 7,000 alumni each year.

This fund is available to students and members of clubs and societies. It supports activities that enhance the student experience and the principle that all outstanding students should have the opportunity to benefit from, and make the most of, their experience regardless of their background. Our donors trust the Footsteps Fund Committee to decide where to spend their gift in a way that will have the biggest or the best impact to the students at Leeds.

There are less than 10 days to get your Footsteps Funding application form in!

This is a great opportunity for you, your club or your project to receive financial support for a range of items or opportunities such as:

  • Sports or equipment that would improve your club (previous funding results have included; telescopes; diving equipment and rowing boats)
  • Activities during International Students’ Welcome Week
  • Activities that would support your club's financial sustainability and help increase participation

If your club requires funding please email Ruth Fawcett, Fundraising & Enterprise Manager r.fawcett@leeds.ac.uk for an application form and guidelines.  The deadline for submission is 12 midday on Wednesday 4th November.  Also feel free to email her for any concerns and questions you may have.

Finally, please note that all Leeds Uni Union club applications MUST come for review to the Union before submission to the Footsteps Fund Committee.  For this reason please disregard any emails you may have received about a later deadline.

Please do make the most of this wonderful opportunity!
