Students participating in educational activities at Cumberland Lodge, Windsor Great Park

Since 1947, the generosity of our friends and supporters has been invaluable in supporting our charitable mission of empowering people, through dialogue and debate, to tackle the causes and effects of social division.

We have been providing transformative experiences for people of all ages, from all walks of life and all over the world, for over 70 years. We break down silo thinking and incubate fresh ideas that promote progress towards more peaceful, open and inclusive societies.

Sponsor a chair or table

In May 2019, we replaced our ageing dining room furniture with 20 solid oak tables and 120 oak and leather dining chairs, designed to be both practical and beautiful, and to better meet the needs of our guests for at least a generation to come. We are pleased to offer you the chance to take your place in Cumberland Lodge history and to support us with the expense of this project, by naming one of our new tables or chairs.

A gift of £400 sponsors a chair, and £2,000 sponsors a table. Your name, or the name of a loved one, will be displayed prominently on your chosen piece of furniture for its lifetime. To support this project, please email Katherine Crowe, our Development Director, at kcrowe@cumberlandlodge.ac.uk, and we will send you further details.

Building an endowment

In 2017, our 70th anniversary year, we launched an endowment fund to help us take our work to a new level. We aim to raise £7.5 million to expand and develop our work, to engage with more people and make a greater impact.

We invite you to join us in our work to build a better society for everyone. A gift to this fund will help to ensure the success of our charitable mission in the years to come.
