Recognising the incredible difference our donors make

Gifts from our alumni, friends and supporters of The Open University are critically important to our mission to make education available to all.

On behalf of the students and millions of lives touched by the projects you support, a heartfelt thank you to everyone who has ever supported The Open University – you’ve personally made such a difference.

Our Donor Recognition list formally recognises the exceptional generosity and thoughtfulness of our individual donors who have given over £1,000 in the last year, left a legacy or remembered The Open University in their Will. We are also deeply grateful to those who have chosen to keep their generosity anonymous.

Support from companies, trusts and foundations

We would like to express our gratitude to those companies, trusts and foundations who have supported students and projects across The Open University. Your foresight and dedication is transforming lives for so many people.
