How your gift could make a difference

This year, we’re focusing on raising vital funds for student support and providing extra funding towards King’s research teams as they continue finding solutions to the world’s most pressing problems.

Open new doors for talented students – one scholarship, one opportunity at a time

As the cost-of-living crisis continues, it’s becoming more and more difficult for talented young people from lower income backgrounds to get the financial support they need to reach university.

Your support has made it possible for me to focus solely on my studies without having to worry about finances.

Callum, LLB Law

A gift this Global Day of Giving could go towards providing much-needed scholarships for bright students like Callum. Your donation towards supporting students could also help initiatives like our recently launched Key to King’s bursary, urgent hardship funding, and widening participation programmes like the Civic Leadership Academy – opening the door for one future researcher, one doctor, one writer, one artist, one lawyer, or one engineer at a time.

Fund research with real impact – one discovery, one innovative idea at a time

From ongoing research into cancer immunology, to advancing gender equality around the world through the Global Institute for Women's Leadership, King's researchers are achieving incredible things. Here are just some of the projects your gift could help support: 

Tackling cancer - one life-saving treatment, one patient at a time

King's has always been at the forefront of cancer research and treatment.

Scientists at King's Health Partners have found a way to boost cancer patients' immune systems through a unique combination of chemotherapy and medication. This revolutionary new treatment aims to target the Heme Oxgenase-1 (H0-1) enzyme (found in many forms of cancer), kick-starting the immune system and transforming the lives of people living with cancer - one treatment at a time.

Advancing gender equality around the world with the Global Institute for Women's Leadership - one change-maker at a time

The Global Institute for Women’s Leadership (GIWL) was founded in 2018 and chaired by Julia Gillard (Australia's first and only female Prime Minister). GIWL’s mission is to advance gender equality and break down systemic barriers that prevent women becoming leaders and driving positive social change - one mentorship, one widening participation project, one key collaboration at a time.

What is seen as leadership and who is able to become a leader should be determined free from any prejudice based on gender.

Julia Gillard, Chair of the Global Institute for Women's Leadership
