On 16 - 17 May 2022 we are holding our first ever Giving Day. Over the course of 36 hours we want as many alumnae, friends, staff and students as possible to come together to show their support for Newnham College.

Wherever you are in the world, there are many ways to get involved this Giving Day, whether by sharing posts on social media or making a gift - we want you to be part of it.


The fundraising focus over these 36 hours is our 150th Anniversary principle of sustainability, as we aim to reduce the College’s impact on the environment and enhance biodiversity in our Gardens. With your help we can continue work to improve the College’s energy efficiency and provide a world-class education for the green engineers of the future. You can find out more about the three key project areas on the pages below.
