Giving to Kent

How to give

Kent would not be here without the generosity of its benefactors. Donations from individuals have been important since the very foundation of the University of Kent in 1965 when individual supporters pledged 50,000 (a large sum at the time) to help establish an academic institution which has been home to thousands of students ever since.

Today, gifts to Kent continue to make a huge difference to the lives of our students, supporting all areas of campus life. To make your gift, please select from the options below:
