About the campaign


The College can look back on 60 years of stellar achievements which include 32 Nobel laureates as former students, staff or Fellows, and 60 years of educating the brightest and best from a range of backgrounds who have gone on to make a difference to the world beyond Cambridge University.

We have chosen to mark the anniversary by launching a campaign to raise at least £6 million for student support and the College’s endowment, and to look forward in the spirit of our foundation. Our campaign, Think Forward, will span the 20/21 academic year, to highlight our successes and help to fund our future.

Our campaign is centred on the College’s endowment and its people, because the essence of our mission is to bring the best students here and the best researchers, to make a difference to people’s lives and to go from Cambridge to help to transform the world.
