Since 1947, the generosity of our friends and supporters has been invaluable in supporting our charitable mission, of equipping and inspiring people to engage in constructive dialogue on the causes and effects of social divisions.
We are passionate about working towards more peaceful, open and inclusive societies and we have a strong track record of providing transformative experiences for people of all ages, from all walks of life and from right across the UK and further afield.
As we celebrate out 70th anniversary in 2017 we have launched an endowment fund to help us take our work to a new level.
We hope to raise £7.5 million to expand and develop our educational work, to engage with more people and make a greater impact on society, in perpetuity.
We invite you to join us in our work to build a better society for everyone. Your gift will be critical to the success of our charitable mission in the years to come.
How your gift could help:
£50 could contribute towards travel costs for one of our student bursary holders, helping them to attend a residential study retreat at Cumberland Lodge with their peers
£110 could provide a bursary to help a student with limited financial means to attend a university study retreat at Cumberland Lodge
£500 could fund a school workshop, to promote social and civic awareness amongst children in Key Stages 1 and 2, equipping them with the skills and confidence to become active contributors to their communities
£1,000 could fund a Cumberland Lodge Fellowship, enabling an emerging community leader to engage with policymakers and opinion formers and build the skills and cross-sector awareness that will be required in their future roles
£3,000 could fund a Cumberland Colloquia, providing a small group of doctoral students and early career researchers with the opportunity to develop an academic conference, with support from our Education team
£25,000 could fund a Cumberland Lodge conference, allowing us to bring together leaders and influencers, students and practitioners, for cross-sector and inter-disciplinary dialogue and debate on some of the most pressing social and ethical issues that we face today.
