King's Global Day of Giving 2023 is over...but we're not ready to say goodbye just yet

This Global Day of Giving has been a huge success, with alumni, staff, and friends of King's College London joining us from all corners of the world to help shape the next generation of students - one small gift, one student support scheme, one research project at a time.

And the grand total is...

In just 36 hours, we raised a phenomenal £52,601...and counting! We're still adding up the donations and will be in touch with the final figure soon. In the meantime, we'd like to say a big thank you to all 330 of our generous donors.

With your help, together we can impact even more students and continue funding innovative research.

Let's keep the conversation going - one story, one connection at a time

From the UK to Hong Kong, Singapore, Australia, the USA, Canada, India and beyond…we're proud to be a diverse community here at King's, with alumni, staff, and students joining us from all over the world.

This Global Day of Giving, we received 81 donations from international supporters from over 30 countries. This is a fantastic achievement and we're so grateful to each and every one of you.

Here's what some of our international alumni donors had to say:

I really enjoyed my time at King's. It was the place where I made some of my best friends and made memories that would last a lifetime.

Ali Jumabhoy (Law, 2018), Singapore

King's is such a vibrant community. A great place for study and research.

John Calverley (MA Philosophy, 2019), Canada

I did my PhD at King’s more than 20 years ago, thanks to a grant from the European Commission. I know how important it is for students to get financial help, and I now feel it is my duty to help other students
