Case for Support


As we reflect on our journey to becoming the technological university for the South West Region, we are grateful for the overwhelming support that we have received from our students, alumni, external stakeholders, and the Cork and Kerry community.

Our ability to thrive as a progressive university could not be achieved without this support. Private and corporate support is essential to helping us provide educational opportunities to the greatest possible number of people across the South West Region. 

Why We Need Your Support

Our goal is to continue to provide MTU services, supports and opportunities across the region for the maximum number of people, communities and organisations.

How You Can Support Us

We have structured opportunities to support MTU around a range of prioritised areas. We wish to raise funds for capital development; student bursaries and scholarships; equality, equity, diversity and inclusion; research and innovation; and student entrepreneurship.

Our supporters may specify that their contributions should be used on a MTU-wide basis or for specific campus locations. 

Why Choose MTU

As we embark on the next leg of developing MTU, we welcome support from all quarters. In return, we offer our supporters the opportunity to be associated with the development of a new university in the South West Region, a once-in-a-176-year opportunity!

Let Us Succeed Together

An investment in MTU is an investment in a university on the rise that is creating the next generation of thought leaders, researchers and entrepreneurs. 

If you wish to make a financial contribution or learn more about how you can support MTU, please feel free to make contact in confidence at any time with Elise Hennebry, our Fundraising Executive, by email at
