As soon as you walk through the gates to study at Homerton College you become a lifelong member. As a College we warmly welcome involvement in the community, and this doesn't stop when you graduate. We want to continue supporting you through your career and in turn kindly ask our alumni to remember us fondly and give back where they can.
Our priorities are:
Student support - Academic support for current students such as book grants, travel grants, research support, Year Abroad support, and the Homerton Changemakers programme. Hardship grants to help meet living expenses – i.e. to prevent any student dropping out of their course due to financial reasons
The student experience - Extra-curricular activity, including sports, music, and drama; Personal development and employability, for example vacation courses and the ‘life skills’ programme.
Graduate bursaries and scholarships (The Kate Pretty Fund) - Most students graduate from their first degree with debt, and need robust funding for graduate study in order to stay in Higher Education. Homerton students look to Homerton for help in funding graduate study.
As well as online donations, Cheques are also accepted, made payable to the Homerton College Appeal Fund.

Leaving a Legacy to Homerton College
The College welcomes gifts by legacy of any sum and to support any aspect of its life and work.
For more than two hundred years, legacies have helped fund teaching at Homerton. Recent bequests by Alison Shrubsole, Hilary Shuard, Joan Simms and others have empowered the College in its core activities of teaching, education and research. They are a most important means of augmenting the endowment and meeting future needs. To expand its support to students, the College encourages Homertonians to provide for a legacy in their Will.
You can find further details on how to leave a legacy, and the benefits this will have for Homerton in our Legacy Brochure.
To make a Gift Aid Donation, please complete the Gift Aid section of the Donation Form or make a gift aid declaration over the phone. If you have given in the past, we may already hold a Gift Aid declaration for you.
