Giving to Bangor
Your gift will support opportunities for all to be involved in the arts, sciences, learning and community programmes.
Bangor University’s £45 million Pontio Arts & Innovation Centre will open in 2014. With major funding from the European Union and the Arts Council of Wales, it is the largest single investment in the Bangor area in a generation.
As home to a mid-scale theatre, studio theatre, cinema, Students Union, spacious lecture theatres, social learning spaces, bar, café and a design and innovation centre, Pontio will reinvigorate Bangor’s city centre. Its innovative design will support a wide range of activities all year round, ranging from performances and workshops to exhibitions and courses. Many members of the wider community are already a part of Pontio — through participating in the Stepping Stones artistic programme, visiting the Pontio Shop on Bangor High Street and participating in other activities.
Bangor University is now asking for donors at all levels, including individuals, trusts and companies, to join the major and lead donors who have made a commitment to the future of Bangor by supporting the building of the Centre — and the many programmes it will host. Major philanthropic supporters of Pontio include the Garfield Weston Foundation, the Esmée Fairbairn Foundation and a number of private donors.
Your support will help Bangor to launch this wonderful project in 2014. Gifts of all sizes are welcome, and all donors will receive recognition as Pontio Supporters.

The Development team would also be pleased to discuss sponsorship opportunities tailored to meet the needs of your business.
