What We Do

At DCU Educational Trust, we are passionate about the transformative power of higher education, and we believe great things are possible when philanthropy combines with a young, dynamic and ambitious university like DCU.

Through our work, we build meaningful partnerships with supporters to advance DCU’s mission to transform lives and societies. From enabling research to tackle the challenge of climate change to providing scholarships for talented youth, the generosity of our supporters has a huge impact.

By supporting DCU’s mission, our donors also contribute to achieving the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals which seek to end poverty, protect the planet and improve the lives and prospects of everyone, everywhere by 2030.
