Making a Gift

King’s would not exist without the generous philanthropy of people over the centuries who wanted to make a difference, and today it plays a vital role in the continuation of the College and its ability to offer a world-class educational experience, as well as an array of extra-curricular opportunities.

The participation of the broader King's community is incredibly important and we are enormously grateful for gifts of all sizes. Your donations have a direct impact on the College's desire to see that no student should have to forsake their studies, and that no prospective and qualified student should be discouraged from applying, for financial reasons. Every gift matters, and it is only by coming together that we will achieve our aims.


How to Get Involved

We are seeking support for a wide range of initiatives and activities which support our students financially and enrich the broader life of the College, as well as projects which protect and enhance the physical fabric of our buildings and spaces, including our world-famous Chapel.

We must be at the forefront of providing equality of access to all who could thrive here, and equality of opportunity to our remarkable students once they have arrived. We must be a catalyst for change – as we have been so often throughout our history - and we must ensure that our College is equipped to continue to be a leading environment for learning, where great minds collaborate for the benefit of all.

There are many ways of being involved and we are incredibly grateful to everyone who has already given so much, whether of your time, your engagement or your financial support. Everything counts, and we invite you to find out more about how you can be part of the making of the next chapter of King’s history.

Donations to the College can be made as a one-off gift or regular donation; as a gift of shares, land, buildings or possessions; or as a bequest in a will.
Legacy giving represents an easy and tax-efficient means of making a future gift to King’s - find out more here.
Alumni are encouraged to stay involved with the life of the College however they can, and many generously donate their time and expertise.

Make an Unrestricted Gift

The Future Fund 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 Fund allows the 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.
