Today’s Thinking Child is Tomorrow’s Achiever

Uplands Prospectus


Uplands welcomes support from individuals, foundations and organisations and would be delighted to discuss ways in which relationships may be fostered with potential supporters.


Uplands pledges to treat its supporters with the highest level of care and respect. We have written this Supporter Charter to assure donors of the integrity and accountability of our Development programme. While we are happy to receive gifts which will support a particular aspect of our work, Uplands cannot accept gifts when a condition of such acceptance would compromise our autonomy and academic freedom.

‘The Foundation provides a stream of carefully stewarded financial support for key strategic objectives, through professional relationship-building and goodwill initiatives with alumni, families and other stakeholders within the Uplands community.’
