University College Cork Quad

Cork University Foundation 

Cork University Foundation (CUF) is a registered charity, No. 11831, through which donations can be made to University College Cork.  The Irish Revenue Commissioners recognise CUF as an "approved body" for the purposes of tax relief under Section 848A and Schedule 26A of the Taxes Consolidation Act A1997 (as inserted by Section 45 of the Finance Act 2001).

Individuals and corporate entities, based in Ireland, can donate to University College Cork through CUF, and may obtain tax relief on their donations.  If a donation to CUF is to qualify for tax relief, it must be at least €250 in any year of assessment or accounting period.  There is no maximum amount which can qualify for relief and relief is also available for donations made by instalments e.g. direct debit.

The Development and Alumni Office (the executive arm of CUF) fosters partnerships of mutual benefit with individuals, trusts, foundations and the corporate sector.  These partnerships are vital as they enable the university to sustain standards of excellence in the areas of teaching and research and to provide a third and fourth level educational experience of exceptional quality.

The Development and Alumni Office offers opportunities to individuals and corporations to become involved in capital development and heritage projects as well as academic and research programmes.  For more details of the type of activites UCC's partners support, or to contact a member of the Development and Alumni team, please visit our website.
