A school built on philanthropy 

Founded in 1841, Cheltenham College has experienced a long history of philanthropic support – from Chapel to the Centenary/New Block and the Chatfeild-Roberts library to the Science Centre in recent years.

Our future success depends upon the benevolence of the whole Cheltenham community and we invite you to contribute with them and help shape the future of our great school. We are enormously grateful for the support of all those who have given a one-off gift or pledged to give on a regular basis. It does not matter how small or large, every gift makes a difference.

The 1841 Society – Cheltenham’s regular giving club.

Celebrating the Power of Regular Giving

The 1841 Society is our regular giving club for all Old Cheltonians, parents, staff and friends of the school. It is a way to grow the collective efforts of our Cheltenham community in support of the school without relying on large individual donations. The emphasis is on maximising the number of regular donors. As a regular donor of a contribution of any size, you will support College by helping to grow an Annual Fund for pupil facing projects.  

Bursary Campaign

Our bursaries are funded by the school and the philanthropic support of the Cheltenham community. Your support of the Bursary Campaign allows College to provide opportunities for greater numbers of new Cheltonians. If you have seen or experienced the transformative power of a Cheltenham education, help us to open the door to future Cheltonians by offering your support. 

To find out more or to get involved, please get in touch with our Development Director, Mr Sebastian Bullock by email s.bullock@cheltenhamcollege.org, or by telephone on 01242 265 600.
