Alma Mater Fund

The Alma Mater Fund gives you the opportunity to support the University of Pretoria. You can choose one of three projects to support:

  1. Alma Mater General Bursary Fund, which supports students by providing bursaries.
  2. Special Projects Fund, which supports worthy causes such as the UP Library, the advancement of campus culture, music and art, and the UP Crisis Line.
  3. Junior Tukkie Sustainability Fund, which assists learners in Grades 10, 11 and 12 to make responsible study and career choices.

You have the choice of contributing R50 a month; R100 a month or R600 a year.

If you donate to this fund, you can choose to have access to Alumni Benefits (see the Alumni Benefits page for more information). If, however, you donate to this fund without choosing the option of Alumni Benefits, you still qualify for a tax receipt according to Section 18A of the Income Tax Act.

To find out more about payment options, contact Marilise du Plessis at +27 (0) 12 420 3086 or email her at [email protected].
