The Future Fund
You are of course welcome to specify that your donation be used for a particular purpose in which you have a special interest or personal investment. All other donations are routed to The Future Fund, which places no restrictions on the use of a donation and allows us to distribute the gift to the area of greatest need, be it student support, our access programme, the College's infrastructure, or the Chapel and Choir.
In this way, The Future Fund allows the Bursar and College the flexibility to both address any immediate need (particularly in areas that do not typically attract donations), but also the potential to invest these donations into the general endowment and boost the future income of the College in perpetuity.
You can support the Future Fund here, or see below for a range of specific funding opportunities.
Established to provide additional resources in support of the existing access and outreach efforts the College undertakes to encourage candidates to apply to King’s and the University of Cambridge.
The most famous and recognisable building in Cambridge, King's College Chapel is of national and international significance, and home to one of the world's most renowned and best-loved choirs.
Founded in the fifteenth century, the Choir of King’s College is the pre-eminent representative of the British church music tradition. It is most famous for singing A Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols, the Christmas Eve service that the BBC has broadcast since 1928.
The buildings at King's are not only recognised around the world, but also provide an environment in which students can learn, live and engage with the opportunities presented by the College and the broader University.
Funding in this area helps maintain the supervision system, the great strength of the teaching system at Cambridge, whilst allowing academics of all levels to produce world-class research alongside their teaching commitments.
As well as preserving many rare book and manuscript treasures, the Library and Archive Centre serves the current needs of undergraduate, graduate and senior members of the College.
The Alan Turing Initiative at King's pays homage to this profound thinker, whose pioneering ideas changed our world and continue to hold significant potential for our future.
