The Arts University Bournemouth Charitable Foundation was established in February 2005 (Charity Commission Number 1109648).

The objects of the Trust as stated in the Governing Document are :-

the advancement of education principally, but not exclusively, within the subject areas of art, design, media and the performing arts and such other purposes as the Trustees shall think fit.”

In practice, there are a number of areas where the Foundation has been active in recent years so as to support the institution and the student experience, in particular.

These include:

  • Oversight of ‘Endowment Prizes’ to students following bequests or legacies from friends of AUB and presented annually at Graduation Ceremonies. You can read more about these prizes here.
  • Award of Travel Bursaries to students. You can read more about these here.
  • Fundraising from alumni and friends of AUB for specific projects. You can read more about this here.
  • Receiving regular reports and making decisions in respect of AUB Investment Funds
