Current fundraising projects

In recent years, support for the College from our alumni and friends have supported hardship funds, studentships, bursaries, and the development of new facilities.

We grateful to all those who have helped students to succeed by supporting our investment in excellence across teaching, facilities, pastoral care and providing support for those who are most in need. This has also helped make sure that the most talented students, regardless of background, have the opportunity to come to Churchill College.

While we manage our finances prudently (and you can read more about our accounts if you wish), we rely on your generosity to provide the additional funds and opportunities that so many of our students benefit from.
