Students during graduation
Rhodes > Giving to Rhodes > About

Rhodes University is one of South Africa’s smallest and oldest universities. It has a well-entrenched culture and tradition, with experience in developing and nurturing exceptional intellectual talent.

As Rhodes University demonstrates its responsiveness by producing graduates with leadership potential who are demographically representative, your involvement in this project ensures an investment in the economic future and social stability of our diverse nation.

Giving to Rhodes University presents an opportunity for partners to seize the future in ways that will fulfil Rhodes University’s enduring promise to its students and our society. You have the benefit of playing a role in securing the futures of deserving students who would otherwise not be able to further their studies.

We are challenged to meet the demands of change – change that comes at us with increasing speed and unpredictability – and the real triumph lies in our ability to honour and rival the efforts of those who have bequeathed this exceptional institution to us, and to strengthen it into an extraordinary one.
