Give to Girton

Give to our area of greatest need to make a difference to Girton's future

Supporting Girton

Since its Foundation, Girton has opened its doors to people with exceptional academic talent, from all backgrounds and circumstances, to give them a remarkable and rare educational opportunity. As the UK’s first Higher Education residential institution for women, Girton’s early pioneers created a bright future for generations of women. Today we remain committed to widening participation. With your help we can ensure that the opportunities Girton provides are available to anyone who is academically able, regardless of their background.

By making an unrestricted gift to Girton, you will provide the College with the flexibility to support our areas of greatest need, aiding all aspects of College life. This year our priorities include increasing our support for student welfare and student clubs and societies.

Girton stories

Human, Social, and Political Sciences

The bursaries I have received from Girton have been really helpful in keeping me focused on my degree and not worrying as much about financial stress. They have assured me that I will be able to pay for my living costs for the whole academic year. As someone who worked on the Telethon Campaign I am really appreciative of these bursaries and how much alumni donors care about the College and the students who are here. Thank you so much for your contribution to Girton
