Donor Roll of Honour

Queen’s University Belfast has a long history of philanthropy.  The first successful fundraising event dates back to 1894 when the President, Reverend Thomas Hamilton, organised a five-day fundraising fair to raise money for a Students’ Union building.  This was followed in May 1896 by a large public meeting in the Great Hall at which considerable sums of money were donated by graduates and friends.  With the funds raised, the foundation stone of the Union was laid on 18 January 1896 and the building was formally opened a year later.

This tradition of giving continues today and the extraordinary support shown by our supporters across the globe allows us to deliver pioneering research, enrich the student experience and change the lives of communities, both in Northern Ireland and beyond.

We extend our deepest appreciation to all of our supporters and acknowledge their contribution through our donor rolls of honour below.  Those who have given over £100,000, donate over £1000 per year or make a regular gift to the University are recognised through the Chancellor’s Circle, the Vice-Chancellor’s Circle and the 1845 Circle respectively.

We also thank those who wish to remain anonymous, and the many friends and volunteers who have given their support to fundraising challenges and events throughout the year.
