Challenge fundraising

Claire KSLP

Fundraising can make a big difference to talented students and our researchers working on world-changing projects, from Alzheimer’s research to conflict resolution and the environment.

If you're thinking of taking on a sporting challenge, then why not show your support for King’s?

Whether you’re taking part in a 10K run or leaping out of a plane, we can help you reach your fundraising target by providing useful materials, support and advice.
