How to Donate

Individuals or organisations who wish to donate to the AWF Fund may do so online via our University-hosted donation webpage or directly by post using the Gift forms. All donations may be gift-aided for UK tax-payers. 

Future Plans

We are proud to have played a part in helping a new generation of young academics and female leaders in their respective areas. We will continue to work closely with our partners to host the Women’s Sport Leadership Academy (WSLA) support participants wishing to attend through scholarships, and contribute to the continued development of graduates via the Catalyst Grant.

We continue to welcome expressions of interest from female scholars who wish to follow in the footsteps of Bárbara, Funda, Game and Lombe.

If you, or someone you know, believe the resources and expertise of both the AWF and the University of Chichester may be of benefit, please send an expression of interest to Dr Jordan Matthews ( including your research, your institution/organisation, and potential funding streams you have or may require for your visit.

We look forward to hearing from you.
