Supporting Sidney

Thank you for considering making a gift to Sidney Sussex College. Last year over 700 alumni and friends made a gift in support of Sidney, donating over £849,000 to the College. 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. We have a number of strategic priorities, with specific projects that will help transform the College.

Regular gifts in particular are of tremendous benefit to the College as they help us to plan more effectively for the future but we appreciate whatever support you are able to offer. All donations, irrespective of size, really do make a difference to the College and to the experience of our students.

There are many ways to give to Sidney Sussex: You can donate a regular, or single gift online. Or alternatively you can download our forms, fill them out and send them back to us. International alumni and friends can support Sidney via Cambridge in America or the Friends of Cambridge University in Hong Kong. Other international alumni are welcome to contact the Development Office directly for further advice on giving from overseas.

When many alumni giving relatively modest amounts join together in support of Sidney collectively a huge difference can be made. Sidney has two societies to recognise our most generous benefactors and those who have remembered Sidney in their will - the 1596 Foundation and the Lady Frances Sidney Circle.
