Giving back, whether with time or a donation, is a fantastic way to stay connected whilst making a huge difference to the future of Essex, and our next generation of students.
Volunteering can support the development of your own skills, help you to make new contacts and aid promotion of Essex in your local area. To get involved, please register your interest.
Whilst some of our face-to-face volunteering opportunities are currently on hold as a result of COVID-19, we still have plenty of virtual opportunities for you to get involved with. You could provide a graduate profile and feature in our blog or on social media, advise and network with current students and fellow alumni over Zoom, or be a guest speaker at one of our online events.
"Volunteering keeps my bonds with my university alive and puts me in touch with old university friends"
Essex was founded on philanthropy and built thanks to gifts from people and companies across the country. We still rely on donations to support our innovative, life-changing research, and to support students now, and in the years to come. With generous gifts from our alumni, we make amazing things happen at Essex.
Every penny you donate to us goes directly to a cause you choose, a cause that means something to you. Whether it’s giving everyone access to an Essex education by supporting our scholarships, providing financial relief to students who find themselves in immediate and unexpected need, or supporting the fund that gives students the full Essex experience that alumni remember so fondly.
Our students are what make Essex so special and we will always do everything we can to give them the amazing university experience they deserve.
