About us

With 60 staff across five teams, DARO works with alumni and others who are passionate about transforming lives, whether by funding medical research trials, supporting student scholarships and bursaries, mentoring students, or providing internships.

We can only secure donations and gifts of time successfully by working collaboratively with staff across all the professional services and the colleges, many of which have DARO staff aligned or embedded.

In 2019, the University launched its next fundraising and volunteering campaign, Birmingham In Action. This is an ambitious and innovative, cause-led, university-wide campaign which we hope our alumni, staff and students will want to take part in and of which they will be proud. There will be many ways for staff to get involved, so please join in and find out how you can take action.

Across these pages you will learn more about what it is that the DARO team does; the University’s latest fundraising and volunteering campaign Birmingham In Action and what we can do for you; the new staff volunteering allowance and how you can take action that will help transform lives and answer some of the world’s - and our region’s - most pressing challenges.
