The Anglican University College of Technology (ANGUTECH) has held a Fundraising dinner to launch an Endowment Fund. The dinner held at the Grand Arena of the Accra International Conference Centre on 12th April, 2024 had “Towards Attaining Charter Status for a continued Manpower Development and Training of Health Professionals and Business Managers for National Development’ as its theme and an initial targeted seed capital of US$2million”.


The Endowment Fund is to help the institution meet its Charter financial requirements.


In his remarks, His Excellency President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo who was the special guest of honour described the occasion as a momentous one marking a significant milestone in the nation’s commitment to education and technological advancement. According to him, the Endowment Fund will not only support the institution’s Charter financial requirement but enable the development and growth of the University College.


His excellency said ANGUTECH’s desire to obtain a charter should be a matter of concern not only to the University College’s stakeholders but to the government given the important role universities play in the development of a nation.


According to him, government appreciates the role private universities are playing to ensure tertiary education is provided for those who otherwise would not have had the opportunity because of limited spaces in public universities especially with the introduction of the free SHS policy.


“I fully support and share in ANGUTECH’s vision to be a leading institution in transforming Ghana's science and technology education for development and therefore support its quest to move forward to become a full-fledged University’ he added.


He urged all present to lend support to the evening’s cause as it was a worthy one.  


Giving a brief on the purpose of the day’s programme earlier, Mr. Michael N.A. Cobblah, a co-chair of the fundraising dinner committee said ten years in the life of any entity is a solid landmark and as such an opportune time for the University College to launch its endowment fund to coincide with its tenth anniversary to create a solid backbone for the institution. He highlighted some of the intended purpose of the Endowment Fund as research grants for faculty, provision of additional facilities and resources to enhance teaching and learning.


The Chairman for the event, Mr. Reginald D. Laryea urged all present to support the University College’s bid to obtain a Charter. He further urged the institution to pay attention to the quality of students it produces and also align with industry in order to improve outcomes and nurture future students.


In his vote of thanks, Rt. Rev’d (Dr.) George Dawson Ahmoah on behalf of his Grace, the Most Rev’d (Dr.) Cyril K. Ben-Smith, Archbishop of the Internal Province of Ghana Anglican Communion, Board of Trustees, Council, Management and Students of the University College expressed appreciation to his Excellency President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo for gracing the occasion and his personal interest in the affairs of the University College.


He also thanked all who contributed in cash and kind to make the day’s function a success and acknowledged the presence of Ministers of State, Staff from the Presidency and invited guests.
