Giving from the US

The Parade may seem a long way from where you’re sitting, but your support can change lives, back in Bath and around the world.

Meet Aditi Shah. As a student, Aditi wanted to do a placement with La Cocina, a non-profit food business incubator that helps women from low-income communities in the Bay Area. She had the passion and the contacts to make it happen, but there was a problem. Despite taking an extra job, finding an academic to fund her flights and a successful crowdfunding campaign, she still needed over  $2,500. Without it, she remained determined to go, but would be, as she put it, “pretty broke”.

That’s when the US alumni community stepped in, making a grant through the University of Bath Foundation Ltd which helped Aditi to make up that critical shortfall. As she said on her return, “Your donations helped me fulfil a dream and made possible what has been a life-changing experience.”
