Giving to Kent

Scholars holding thank you boards in Darwin College

Whose world will you change?

Make a difference to the lives of our students and community

At Kent we generate, disseminate and exchange knowledge – in doing so we transform lives.

We are proud of what we do: especially proud that we do it together with our wonderful supporters. They enable us to have a greater impact: creating opportunities for our students, accelerating ground-breaking research discoveries and making a difference in our communities. 

To them we say a heartfelt thank you. And to you, if you think you can add your support, we ask that you get in touch so together we can change someone’s world today.
