Making a difference: why we need your support

For over 800 years, Cambridge has been changing the world. Since 1885 Hughes Hall has been a part of that story, and today Hughesians are playing their part in a huge variety of disciplines, from medicine and law to education and engineering. To our 700 strong international student body, we are a home, a support, and a community.

Our students and researchers are pushing the frontiers of scientific research into life threatening diseases, finding ways to help protect fragile ecosystems and developing new technologies that will improve the quality of people’s lives.

Whether you donate time, funds or expertise, your philanthropy helps us to make a difference. Click on one of the images below to find out more about the various ways we are making a difference, or make a gift here. To find out more about becoming a donor from outside the UK, click here.
