SPU launches Donating to SPU

Sol Plaatje University is pleased to announce the launch of the ‘Donating to SPU’ web page, which goes live on the SPU website today, 31 May 2021.

The purpose of the page is to create a central home dedicated to raising funds for various University initiatives that will make it simple for internal and external stakeholders to convert to donors. Whether big or small, funding plays a significant role in maintaining excellence in research and student support.

In line with its business sustainability strategy, SPU employed a Director of Institutional Advancement, Mr Qondakele Sompondo, to drive its institutional positioning and resource mobilisation imperatives. “We are thrilled to launch the ‘Donating to SPU’ web page, which is a one-stop-shop for philanthropic giving to SPU,” says Mr Sompondo. “As an institution, we believe that our students and our research have the potential to change the world; therefore, their stories must be shared with the whole world”.

The web page is structured to allow a seamless user experience with an easy-to-navigate homepage with a recognisable Donating to SPU design, in line with the SPU brand. Here, visitors are welcomed by a call-to-action from SPU’s Vice-Chancellor and Principal, Professor Andrew Crouch, prompting donors to make a difference. There is also information on current appeals requiring funding, fundraising projects, success stories, and a ‘ways to donate’ tab where donors can donate online or make direct EFT payments into the University’s bank account.

The Donating to SPU web page is a critical element in garnering financial support for scholarships and research programmes that will not only change lives for the better but will ensure that talented young people can study at SPU regardless of their background. Against this backdrop, members of the public and the SPU community are encouraged to visit the web page and contribute to making a difference.
