Annual Fund

Since its foundation, Sidney Sussex College has flourished in large part through the generosity and support of its alumni and friends.

Each year the Sidney Sussex College Annual Fund has a real and immediate impact on our current and prospective students and gifts to the Annual Fund will support the College’s three priorities:

  • To attract and support the very best students irrespective of their financial background.

  • To continue to provide personalised teaching with high levels of supervision by research-active Scholars.

  • To enhance our students’ experience at Sidney by providing excellent facilities and a wide range of activities including student societies, Sidney Sussex Choir, music and performance, sports and travel.

Last year almost 400 alumni and friends made a gift in support of Sidney, donating over £672,000 to the College. As a result of this generosity we are able to continue to offer the best possible teaching and study resources to all of our students, irrespective of their financial position.   

By making a gift to the Annual Fund you will be joining the many alumni and friends already making a contribution to Sidney. Above all, this generosity will ensure that Sidney remains a centre of academic excellence for students from a wide range of backgrounds for many years to come. 

All donations, irrespective of size, really do make a difference to the College and to the experience of our students. When many alumni giving relatively modest amounts join together in support of Sidney collectively a huge difference can be made.
