The Tel Aviv University Trust, based in London, leads fundraising activities for Tel Aviv University. The Trust invites TAU Professors to share their research and knowledge with British audiences to strengthen the University’s reputation in the UK, and encourages academic collaborations with TAU and UK Universities.
The TAU Trust hosts some 15 events per year, ranging in scale from small breakfasts to large scale fundraisers. TAU Trust uses these events as a vehicle to raise awareness of Israel’s largest University as well as raising funding to support it.
Over the course of the past few months we have run many high-profile events for the wider community. Our key event for 2016 was:
University for a Day
