Advancement and Documentation Unit





Universities, globally, have multiple sources of funding. To achieve the fundraising objectives set by the University of Medical Sciences (UNIMED), Ondo City, the administration created the Advancement and Documentation Unit in March 2016. The Unit is administratively located within the Vice Chancellor's Office and is charged to organize and coordinates the University's drive for generating funds.

Fundraising at the University is primarily through the Friends of UNIMED Fund (FUF) created to facilitate infrastructural growth and development. The “Friends of UNIMED” are donors and individuals or corporate bodies that make one-off, regular, small, and determined financial contributions towards the implementation of specific projects in the University.

The Advancement and Documentation Unit primary responsibility are to identify and create innovative ideas and ways of raising funds for the University to actualize the mission and vision within a shortest possible time. Other functions of the Unit are:

  • To find new sources of funds for the University.
  • Maintain a strong relationship with current, major individual donors and 'Friends' of the University
  • Receive, acknowledge and track all donations and pledges
  • Maintain updated mailing lists, donor lists, and donor profiles.
  • Responsible for cultivation and maintenance of alumni relations
  • Represent the school and be an active participant in the community through membership in civic groups and economic development organizations
  • Maintain relationships with donors and the community
  • Analyse and prepare fundraising reports to management and stakeholders as at when due or needed.
  • Oversees the planning for the university fundraising efforts including annual fund, endowment and planned to give.

Since its establishment in March 2016, the Unit in conjunction with the Fund-Raising Committee has been working assiduously to raise fund and to key into the goals and objectives of the University.

The quote 'Small Acts, When Multiplied by Millions of People Can Transform the World' – Howard Zinn is the FUF and Unit's mantra.

The Unit is enlisting more people to the Network.
