£1.25 million Wolfson Foundation grant to Royal Veterinary College (RVC)

Over the last few weeks we have been able to deliver a number of transformational six and seven-figure major gifts and grants for our clients.

We are very pleased to report the latest of these at the Royal Veterinary College (RVC) with a £1.25 million grant from the Wolfson Foundation.

The Wolfson grant will support the RVC’s ongoing fundraising efforts for its £45 million campus development at Hawkshead in Hertfordshire, to bring unique benefits to people, animals, societies and environments at a global scale, by bringing together the interdisciplinary teams needed to deliver research, clinical aspects and education in the context of One Health.

The One Health approach is a perspective of health that recognises the interconnection between people, animals, plants and the shared environment. As a pioneer in this field, the RVC is forging important partnerships with leaders in human medicine and social sciences to address some of the most important global challenges affecting the poorest communities around the world.

The three-story development, which is already underway, is designed to inspire and promote collaboration between scientists, clinicians and external partners and will equip students with the knowledge and skills required to tackle global challenges, and empower them to become the One Health leaders of the future.
