Supporting King’s

King’s is a place where an education charged with creative and intellectual energy is driven by a unique physical environment, and where the principles of inclusivity, diversity, equality of opportunity and independent thinking have always been a hallmark.

We are committed to providing equality of access to every student who could thrive at King’s, and supporting them to achieve to the very highest of their ability; to ensuring that the College can continue to be a world-leading environment for teaching and learning; and to protecting and enhancing our unique physical and cultural heritage.

By making a gift to King’s, you can help ensure that the opportunities we provide here are open to the brightest and best students whatever their backgrounds or circumstances, and that the College’s areas of greatest needs are supported.

Give now.

The King's Campaign

The King’s Campaign, launched in 2018, is raising £100 million to shape the next stage in the College’s history. Thanks to the generosity of our alumni, friends and supporters, to date we’ve raised £89 million.

Your gifts have enabled talented A-level students from disadvantaged backgrounds to realise their academic potential, and to come and study here. Thanks to you, more graduate scholarships are available than ever before, and our graduate students supported at times of greatest financial need.

Gifts have allowed us to expand the scope of our Research Fellowships and attract the best candidates not only in traditional fields but in new and interdisciplinary areas. You have helped us build and refurbish some brilliant buildings, and provide better facilities for our students and staff.

We are incredibly grateful for all your support, your commitment and your trust in us. Please join us in taking King’s into the next chapter in its history.

The impact of the King's Campaign can be seen in many ways across what the College does, most of all in the lives of our students.
