University of York
Founded on principles of excellence, equality and opportunity for all, the University of York opened in 1963 with just 230 students. Since then, it has become one of the world’s leading universities, and today its strategy focuses on providing an environment that attracts the very best staff and students from all over the world, encourages and facilitates academic endeavour, and provides a supportive atmosphere for the development and sharing of knowledge.
The University’s Office of Philanthropic Partnerships and Alumni started using The Raiser’s Edge back in 1996, and up until this point they had little formal engagement with their alumni population. They are particularly proud of how well they have grown their development programme over the past 20 years and their innovative use of technology to facilitate this. The University was one of the first in the UK to begin using Raiser’s Edge NXT, when they upgraded in 2014.
