The University of Glasgow Relies on The Raiser’s Edge® to Stay at the Forefront of Higher Education Fundraising

The University of Glasgow was founded in 1451 and has steadily grown into one of the UK’s leading universities, with an international reputation for its research and teaching. Attracting students from over 80 countries throughout the world, the University has more than 16,000 undergraduate students, 4,000 postgraduate students, and 100,000 up-to- date alumni and friends.


  • The University’s development office was introduced to raise funds for an extensive series of University projects and to develop and enhance relationships with alumni and friends worldwide.
  • As the development office grew and with the introduction of many new campaigns with targets of several million pounds each, it became apparent that a single fundraising specific database was required.
  • This would allow the department to manage and report on alumni, donors, campaigns and events much more efficiently and effectively.


  • The development office implemented The Raiser’s Edge, importing and de-duplicating data from its existing disparate database systems.
  • The University also began using RE:Event®, the dedicated events module for The Raiser’s Edge to easily manage the numerous events it runs throughout the year.


  • Since implementing The Raiser’s Edge, The University of Glasgow has consistently ranked as one of the top universities in the UK in terms of raising funds from philanthropic sources.
  • Staff eliminated the additional cost of duplicate mailings by incorporating all graduate and donor details into The Raiser’s Edge.
  • The development team has successfully raised millions of pounds worth of funds for many major campaigns using The Raiser’s Edge, including almost £7.1 million in the space of a year.
