Where UBBC needs Alumni support
The University of Bristol Boat Club Alumni has donated over a quarter of a million pounds to UBBC to date. Alongside student fundraising efforts, regular alumni contributions enable UBBC to purchase the equipment needed to perform within the highest levels of UK university rowing.
What happens to your contributions?
Direct Debit contributions are pooled
Contributions are collected each month and kept in an account held by the UBBC Alumni.
The UBBC Steering Committee meet
Representatives from the UBBC Alumni, UBBC and University of Bristol Sport meet 2-3 times a year to discuss the club's current spending needs and allocate UBBC Alumni funds appropriately to a fundraising campaign. This ensures UBBC Alumni funds aren't lost or spent inappropriately.
UBBC Alumni funding is donated to UBBC
Once a campaign has reached its spending target, UBBC Alumni funds are donated to UBBC through the University of Bristol Alumni Office. Donating in this way allows Gift Aid to be claimed, which can contribute an additional 25p for every £1 donated at no extra cost.
UBBC purchase new equipment to enable them to perform at the highest level
