Wherever you are in the world, if you feel able to donate to support St Edmund’s you can do so online on our website. You can also reach out to development@st-edmunds.cam.ac.uk about ways in which you might be able to help your alma mater.

What, when, who, how, why???

From 17th – 23rd March, a team of student callers from St Edmund’s will be calling alumni and friends of the College.

We’re calling to update our members around the world on life at College, on our plans and priorities for today and the future, to catch up on what’s going on with them, and of course to ask for support from our community to help us ensure that St Edmund’s today and tomorrow is the best version of itself it can possibly be.

With this appeal, we are fundraising to support the College in its areas of greatest need.

This year we have made exciting progress in our project to expand the College’s estate. The CR, the central hub for all our students, has remained largely unchanged for decades despite the College now having over 700 current students. There is an urgent need to accommodate our ever-growing community, which is why we plan to refurbish the entire ground floor of the Norfolk Building. A gift to the Estate Development Fund will help the College to improve on our social and communal spaces to meet the needs of our growing community, as well as help in keeping our existing buildings in the best condition.

With the rising cost of living, many of our students are facing increasing financial hardship. Donations to the Student Support Fund will provide essential hardship awards to ease students’ financial burden, enabling them to make the most of their time at the College and reach their full academic potential.

An unrestricted gift to the Eddies Fund will be directed towards the areas of greatest need and it is thanks to the generous donations of alumni and friends to this fund that we have been able to ensure the continued financial stability of the College.

Together, we can make a real difference.

We believe in the power of our community to come together to have an influence greater than any one of us and which, because of the power of this statement of support, is truly greater than the not insubstantial sum of its parts.

Whether you can donate £10, £500, or £5,000, your support of the College will be transformative for our community.
