Philanthropy is the golden thread linking our greatest achievements. You can donate today – online, by phone or post. Legacy gifts are a vital way to secure our future. Our fundraisers are on hand any time to offer advice or to discuss a major gift.
Cambridge has always been a place for working together to achieve great things and our volunteers play important roles in continuing this tradition. We are immensely proud of our volunteers, who give their time and expertise to help the University make an impact locally and in the wider world. They are amongst our most valuable ambassadors and advocates.
Discover why philanthropy matters and how it makes Cambridge better still. Hear from our donors about their philanthropic motivations and from those who have been supported by such gifts during their time at the University.
