Makerere University Endowment Fund will Tuesday, August 2, commission MakAdvance system.
This will be commissioned by the University Chair Council, Mrs. Lorna Magara.
The launch will be held at the Frank Kalimuzo Central Teaching Facility in the Council Room at the University Main Campus.
This is part of the Celebrations of the University’s 100 years of excellence.
Since its humble beginning in 1922, Makerere University has been able to transform communities and societies through its wealth of human capital.
The university boasts of over 400,000 living alumni that stretch beyond East Africa, Africa, and the world in governance, business, diplomacy and development.
The #MakAdvance system is an initiative designed to build a digital and interactive alumni database where all Alumni and friends of Makerere can create accounts and update their bio-data, digitally donate funds towards different causes in the university, provide real-time updates on events running in the University and improve service delivery regarding donations, news, alumni and stakeholder management through a streamlined, integrated, efficient and effective platform.
The MakAdvance system is built around seven pillars:
Alumni and Stakeholder Management
The section manages information including Alumni registration, chapter enrollment, societies subscriptions, alumni directory listing. So far, information for over 300,000 alumni is in the system.
This section allows for convenient payment options for our alumni and stakeholders as they donate towards different causes in the university.
The Donor ranking section enables us to create a database of donors in recognition and rank donations made to the different causes using the available channels i.e. mobile money, PayPal, and cards.
This section primarily manages the different causes in the university. This includes time- bound causes and non-time bound causes such as scholarships, events etc.
Events and Webinar Management
The system also tracks and profiles all events and webinars happening across the University from both Internal and external stakeholders.
Dashboard, social media management
Enables administration of information in the system and report generation.
