Alumni and supporters' financial support plays a critical role in securing the future of University College Cork, enabling strategic growth and providing unique and exceptional educational experiences for our students.

If you wish to make a gift to UCC, the following options are available to you:


Online giving

Our online giving platform allows you to quickly donate, and direct your gift to the specific projects at the University that you want to support.

In order to take full advantage of the tax benefits available to our donors based in Ireland, the UK and the US, please visit the relevant link below.

Donors who are resident in countries other than those mentioned above may make a donation in Euros, but may not be eligible for charitable tax relief in their country of residence.  Note that all gifts are processed through the Cork University Foundation, which serves as the philanthropic arm of the university, with 100% of all donations go directly to the UCC.   For further information on tax effective contributions and other ways of making a donation visit Ways to Give.
