The challenge we're facing
Government funding hasn't matched the dramatic growth in student numbers. There's now enormous pressure on the University to raise more money and fill the financial gap. If we don't do it, no one else will.
We're determined that teaching continues to flourish and students thrive at Kingston. That's why we've launched Kingston University's Annual Fund, to:
- support the pursuit of academic and vocational excellence;
- help students through the hard times; and
- improve the University's facilities.

Who else is giving?
Whether it's to say 'thank you', or because they believe in education, or simply to make life a little fairer, people donate to the Annual Fund for lots of reasons. Here are two pretty good ones…
Coming from Gibraltar, which sponsors its students, I was very fortunate to receive a grant for my studies without which I would not have been able to read a Law degree at Kingston. Even with this help, however, the costs of living abroad and near London were quite high. Without the outside help that we got, it must be even more challenging. And as my years at the University were amongst my best ever I would therefore like to help other students enjoy them just as much.

I had the very great fortune to go to college when students received a full maintenance grant and all tuition fees were paid. I had the best three years of my life at Kingston and I want others to enjoy studying there too. This is why I donate to the Student Hardship Fund. Ours was such a lucky generation though of course we didn't know it then! I've had a great career thanks to Kingston. Time to give a bit back.

It's your choice
Big or small. Regular or one-off. Whatever you give and however you decide to give it, your generosity will make a positive difference to the lives and life of Kingston.
You can ask us to direct your donation to a specific area, or you can trust us to invest it where it's needed most. The choice is all yours. But whatever you decide, you can rest assured that your money will be used with care and discretion.
Together we can change the world
The results of your generosity won't just be felt in Kingston. With your help Kingston can continue to train teachers, geologists, engineers, nurses, radiographers, forensic scientists, lawyers, architects, surveyors, artists, writers, designers… vocations across the whole professional range.
You'll be helping to send people out into the world who can not only help solve its problems, but also enrich the lives of those around them. And for that we – and they – thank you.
If you'd like to talk to someone at Kingston before making your donation – maybe to discuss how it's used – please call Jason Barlow on +44(0)20 8417 3112.
