Doubling the impact of new gifts to student support

Through the visionary philanthropy of David and Claudia Harding, Cambridge has an exciting opportunity to enhance the impact of your generosity.

If you are a new donor to the Collegiate University, or have not given since July 2018, and give to any aspect of 'All the best' — our student support initiative — your gift will unlock, pound for pound, a contribution to a special fund for undergraduate financial support. 

Your donation will benefit both your College and students in greatest need across Cambridge and in turn inspiring others. Gifts of any size up to £100,000 qualify and every pound makes a difference.

This challenge is the first time the Collegiate University has come together in a fundraising effort to extend the impact of a donor’s gift, which enables us to do more for students than ever before.

To take advantage of the Harding Challenge now, and multiply the power of your donation, please contact your College.

What matters most to us? That all students with the potential to excel have a chance to study at Cambridge and its Colleges, not just some.
