The Herefordshire Tertiary Education Trust FOUNDERS’ FUND

The history of universities almost always begins with a collection of wise individuals who fund the foundation of an institution to ensure that learning can occur freely and benefit the community.

The HTET Founders’ Fund Fund invited 100 individuals, businesses and organisations with the foresight to understand the value that a new university will bring to Herefordshire, to make a minimum donation of £5,000 to realise the vision of a university in Hereford. The Fund enabled the Herefordshire Tertiary Education Trust to retain the breadth of professional expertise required to launch a unique university that will support the revitalisation of Herefordshire, drive educational aspiration in the county, and help our businesses and young people be ready for the challenges of the 21st Century.

The Founders’ Fund is now closed.  Thank you to our current Founders who have made the development of NMiTE possible.
