Will you pave the way for the next world-changing discovery?

For 200 years, discoveries made here at Manchester have changed the world.

From splitting the atom to pioneering graphene, this University has a rich history of changing the world for the better.

But for everything that’s already been achieved, there’s so much more left to do. Cancer continues to tear families apart. Millions of people live without clean water. And the climate emergency threatens the very future of our planet.

Every day, incredible research is going on here at Manchester to help solve these enormous issues. From cancer to stroke, climate change to global inequality - our experts are searching for answers. But they need your help to make it happen faster.

Finding the next life-changing discovery takes time and commitment. It needs the best and brightest minds working together at scale like never before. And if history’s shown us anything, it’s how we must be prepared for whatever new challenge awaits us.

By making an urgent gift today, you’ll help scale up the number of promising early-career researchers working across the most critical areas. With your help, brilliant people will be able to explore big ideas and uncover new, life-changing discoveries for the benefit of us all.

Protecting our planet for generations to come

From extreme weather to nature loss. Rising sea levels to food insecurity. The climate crisis is one of the biggest challenges facing the planet today. Without new solutions, it will be catastrophic for our wildlife, our environment and all of us.

With a gift today, you’ll help accelerate what our talented researchers are able to achieve in critical areas like climate change, for the benefit of us and generations to come.

Achieving good health for all

One in two of us will be diagnosed with cancer at some point in our lives. Stroke continues to be one of the leading causes of death. And there’s a huge disparity in life expectancy between the most and least deprived areas in the UK and around the world.

Everyone deserves to live a long and healthy life, no matter where they live or their life circumstances.

With more scientists tackling some of the biggest health challenges, research progress will happen more quickly. Which means life-changing solutions to some of the world’s devastating diseases could be just around the corner.

With a gift today, you’ll pave the way for a happier, healthier future for all.

Fighting global inequity

Brilliant Manchester minds have already made world-changing progress in areas like graphene development - helping more people access clean water. But there’s so much more to do in the fight against global inequity.

Not everyone can access clean water. Almost one in ten people live in extreme poverty. And the gap between rich and poor grows wider every day.

Your support today will help world-leading researchers have access to all tools they need to succeed. Free to explore some of their biggest ideas, they’ll use their passion and skills to bring us all closer to the day where no one goes hungry, thirsty or without shelter.

Supporting the research leaders of tomorrow

Brilliant research needs brilliant people. And brilliant ideas can come from anywhere. That’s why we need a rich, diverse team of researchers to bring us closer to the breakthroughs of the future.

We don’t have any time to spare. The next generation of research leaders are waiting to get started. But they need generous people like you to give them the support they to bring their ideas to life.

By making your gift today, you’ll make sure the very best researchers are bringing us closer to solving our world’s biggest challenges. And at a time where other funding sources continue to be a threat, your support couldn’t be more appreciated.

Double your gift, double your impact

By donating today, your gift will be matched by a generous Manchester donor – up to a total value of £300,000.

With twice the support, you’ll help bring even more of the most talented researchers into our world-leading teams. Where together, they will work to solve the most challenging problems facing society.

So, please take this incredible opportunity and double your impact today.

Thank you so much.
