Support Durham University

Durham University is incredibly grateful for the gifts that it receives from its alumni and other supporters.

Since 1 August 2010 the University has receipted single gifts and pledges to the value of almost £25.706m from almost nine thousand donors. In addition to this incredible total, the University has also claimed, or will be able to claim as pledge instalments are received, another £1.987m in Gift Aid. This money has allowed us to fund new research, support students in coming to study at Durham University as well as taking full advantage of the all that Durham has to offer in terms of student experience, and to both refurbish some of our most well known heritage sites and build brand new state of the art failicities.
