At its AGM held on 27 September 2016 the Chair of the Foundation, Professor Stephanie Young, introduced the charity's Annual Review of activities during 2015-16 . Professor  Young said:

"I am delighted to present an Annual Review that highlights the progress the Foundation has made in making a positive impact on the life of students, present and future and the wider communities the College serves.  ....This review highlights some of the success stories, from supporting 500 ESOL learners through their registration and learning journey at the College, to fulfilling the ambitions of 3 support staff members to participate in full time further education, and completing important building improvements to the Student Services area at Anniesland campus".

During 15/16 the Foundation has awarded over £5.8 million in funding to projects that offer:

  • Major investment in the College's 3 campus estates and ICT systems (£5.2 million)
