The Kingsmaker Guild

The Kingsmaker Guild is a group of dedicated alumni who have a disproportionate impact on student support at King’s. Their generous donations fund programmes that transform students lives, such as the Hardship Fund, the K+ programme or the Civic Leadership Academy, which was awarded the Guardian’s Employability and Entrepreneurship Award in November 2020. As a member, you will receive a personalised report twice a year to update you on the funding targets for the university’s student support programme, and to hear directly from the students and initiatives you are supporting.

You can start your annual membership either by making a single gift of at least £1,000 or by spreading your gift out regularly, for example by giving £84 a month or £1,000 annually via Direct Debit. If you are overseas, you can also join by making a regular card payment at the link here.

Hear from Poppy how the support from Kingsmaker Guild members changed her time at university:

‘The Civic Leadership Academy is the perfect programme for students, providing a mixture of charity experience, community spirit and giving opportunities to students who would not otherwise be able to access work meaningful experience.

I was really not a confident person before joining the Civic Leadership Academy. I didn’t know how to communicate with people in a professional environment and I found public speaking absolutely terrifying. My experience at the charity I was partnered with changed that and gave me confidence. It taught me that it was ok to use my voice and that my views were valid.

A massive thank you to all the alumni who donated to the programme – it has been the highlight of my time at King’s.
