The 1473 Foundation

Read about the 1473 Foundation, the donors' recognition circle at St Catharine's.

The 1473 Foundation is a circle of Members and friends who have, through their generosity, affirmed their support of the College’s commitment to world-class education. Established in 2009, the Foundation’s name commemorates the opening of the College on St Catharine’s Day in 1473.

Membership is open to individuals whose gifts to the College total £50,000 and above. It is usual for membership to be conferred by the Master at the 1473 Foundation Gala. This annual event takes place in College, with occasional international events also taking place, to recognise our supporters overseas. 

We are always pleased to welcome new members of our community of benefactors. Please contact the Development Director if you would like to discuss supporting the College and joining the 1473 Foundation: +44 (0)1223 338337 or
