Why support CEB? Making a difference

Across Cambridge, evidence of the transformative effect of your gifts abounds. Thousands of students have been able to study in Cambridge – purely on the basis of their talent. Support for key posts is helping to meet demand and sustain our research vitality. The number of Scholarships available has increased thanks to the world-class facilities that supporters like you are making possible. And the impact of your generosity can be seen in our museums, not only in the glass cases but in the faces of the hundreds of thousands of people who visit them each year.

People support Cambridge mainly because they want to give back to a University that has given them so much. They also support Cambridge because the teaching and research taking place across the collegiate University, matters on a global scale.  Several alumni and corporate partners have shown their commitment to the department and its values by supporting CEB and helping advance the education of the future in many different ways
