The Garfield Weston Foundation

In 1989 The Garfield Weston Foundation became the first major benefactor to the University's newly-launched development campaign, when it gave 1 million pounds. It has now given a further 2.5 million pounds towards the construction of the Centre for Mathematical Sciences.

Canadian-born Garfield Weston was educated at the universities of Oxford and Harvard. He has been Chairman of Associated British Foods since 1967.
