Sheffield Hallam University is an exempt charity. Find out more about our status and governance here.
The University has recently confirmed and signed off a new policy focused on the acceptance of philanthropic donations to the University in line with best practice in the sector. It aims to give all staff an overview of the most appropriate steps to take when considering potential philanthropic gifts from individuals, charitable trusts and companies in support of the University’s work and introduces a new governance framework for the sign off of such donations. This is overseen by the Vice-Chancellor’s Advancement Advisory Board which was established in 2016 to provide support, advise and sign off of activities relating to philanthropic fundraising and alumni relations.
The Development & Alumni Relations Office administrates this policy and has been established to champion fundraising initiatives across the University, including the Hallam Fund, working with departments to energise global alumni networks and also maximise relationships with Honorary Doctors and benefactors. The department also has responsibility for managing data for these stakeholder groups.
The policy is accompanied by new guidelines for the naming of University assets – from lecture theatres to buildings.
If you would like a copy of our Gift Acceptance Policy or the naming guidelines, please contact the DARO Office.
The University is committed to ensuring fundraising activities are conducted in an ethical manner which matches the interests of both donor and the University. Sheffield Hallam is registered with the Fundraising Regulator and abides by the Fundraising Code of Practice.
