Vice-Chancellor Dr Max Price is abroad this week on a fundraising and alumni-relations roundtrip, visiting three countries - six cities to be precise - in just two weeks.
Price and Dr Jim McNamara, executive director of UCT's Development and Alumni Department (DAD), set off on this fundraising initiative to meet and thank individual donors, corporates, foundations and alumni for their past and ongoing support, and to speak of further collaborations. They are to visit the UK, US and Canada over the two weeks.
Former Vice-Chancellor Dr Stuart Saunders will join them for the London leg, where they are to attend the AGM of UCT's UK-based fundraising arm, the UK Trust, of which Saunders is a trustee.
Along the way, Price and McNamara will also meet with a number of potential donors, identified by DAD, to explore future relationships. In Canada, they will consult with board members of the UCT Foundation Canada.
On top of an already tight schedule, they will also attend alumni events in London, Chicago, San Diego, San Francisco, Los Angeles and Vancouver.
