University College London
UCL is London’s leading multidisciplinary university, with more than 11,000 staff and 38,000 students from 150 different countries. Founded in 1826, UCL was the first university in England to welcome students of any class, religion, and the first to welcome women on equal terms with men.
In September 2016, UCL launched their ‘It’s All Academic’ global philanthropy and engagement campaign. The campaign aims to raise £600m and is the third largest fundraising campaign by any higher education institution in Europe.

“We had been using another fundraising solution, however the vendor was due to discontinue support of the version we were on, and we felt that it was a good time to take our fundraising activities up a notch. With the launch of our new fundraising campaign, it made perfect sense for us to bring in a sophisticated all-in-one CRM solution that would help us to manage things both efficiently and effectively.”
