The Birzeit Annual Fund is an essential resource that helps the University to maintain its status as the most-competitive and most-reputable Palestinian institution of higher education. Gifts to the Annual Fund improve students’ lives, helping us to offer them world-class facilities and an enriching campus experience that is fit for the requirements of delivering higher-education services in the 21st century.
Through the Annual Fund, we enhance student life at our campus and enrich students’ academic development, allowing them to benefit from state-of-the-art facilities and technology. Fund monies pay for computer and laboratory equipment, exhibitions in the museum, recreation and wellness resources, outreach programs for community engagement and sports and cultural activities.
Gifts to the Annual Fund fuel campus life, helping Birzeit to recruit the best students and faculty, while working vigorously to meet students’ needs. The Annual Fund has an impact on nearly every aspect of a student’s higher-education experience at Birzeit. Annual Fund gifts made by our dedicated community of friends, faculty, staff, students, parents and alumni support daily operations at the University and enrich our legacy of philanthropic support, helping Birzeit to meet the challenges of providing higher-education services under conditions of occupation and economic recession.
Thanks to the support of our generous donors, we are able to fund basic requisites that make an education at Birzeit University unique and satisfying, providing us with resources to fund societies, activities, capital maintenance projects and technological advancement that positively impact and enrich the student experience at Birzeit.
