We recognise all gifts above £1,000 donated in an academic year through Cylch Caerdydd.

It’s a matter of getting the message out that a gift of £1,000 per year is enough to transform a current student’s experience. There’s a compelling case that the institutions that influenced what you have become deserve your support, which is why I am proud to be a member of Cylch Caerdydd.

Founded by our Vice Chancellor, Professor Colin Riordan, in 2015 Cylch Caerdydd recognises the importance of gifts above £1,000. Cylch Caerdydd donors play a crucial role for Cardiff, through the financial impact of their support, on the University’s work and inspiring other supporters to follow their lead. Cylch Caerdydd donors represent Cardiff’s leading fundraising ambassadors, and their impact – both individually and collectively – is of growing significance to Cardiff.

Within the academic year, Cylch Caerdydd donors are acknowledged at the following gift levels :

  • £1,000 - £4,999
  • £5,000 - £24,999
  • £25,000+


The Vice-Chancellor will write to all our Cylch Caerdydd donors. You will also receive a special pin badge, updates about the University and, unless you ask to remain anonymous, will be highlighted in the University annual list of donors. In addition, the Cylch Caerdydd exclusive annual reception offers you the chance to speak personally with members of our Senior Leadership team and hear from special guest speakers.  Our most generous donors will also be invited to meet key people at the University, and to stay in touch with project teams personally.
