Support Durham University

We are so grateful for the gifts that we receive from our alumni and supporters.

In the last ten years, you have generously donated over £71m to support the University.

Your support is helping Durham to inspire the great minds and leaders of tomorrow. These gifts have funded new research, supported students in studying here as well as taking full advantage of the whole Durham experience, and both refurbished some of our most well-known heritage sites and built brand new state of the art facilities. This all contributes to our extraordinary people here at Durham becoming the best they can be, achieving the outstanding and inspiring the world.
