Wits Foundation UK

Who we are

About the Foundation

The Wits Foundation UK is an independent charitable organisation established to support the University of the Witwatersrand in Johannesburg, South Africa. The Foundation and its trustees are committed to assisting Wits to build on its strengths as a great university justly admired for its globally competitive standards of excellence in learning, teaching, and research. Our aim is to promote greater awareness of the enormous contribution Wits makes, to secure financial support for Wits, and to keep alumni in contact with their alma mater.

Donate Now


Wits University’s teaching and research can only be sustained with the continued support of its global network of alumni and friends. Your donation directly benefits Wits students today and in the future. You can make an unrestricted gift to be allocated at the Vice-Chancellor’s discretion, or you can request that your donation be for a specific purpose at Wits. Gifts of any size are sincerely appreciated and may offer considerable tax benefits to you as a UK tax payer. Your money will go further than you might expect.

Celebrating 100 Years of Wits

Wits Centenary

2022 marks 100 years since Wits became a university.  We want as many alumni and friends as possible to participate in the centennial celebrations, and to join us on our journey into Wits’ second century.

Stay in Touch

Whether you graduated last year or 50 years ago, we encourage alumni to stay connected to Wits and to other alumni. Update your contact information with Wits Alumni Relations to stay apprised of alumni reunions and events.
