The Time and The Place Fund
The Annual Fund aggregates a large number of Members’ donations in order to make a significant impact. These donations are used to meet Pembroke’s most pressing and ongoing needs.
As its name suggests, the Annual Fund is generated by a yearly approach to all Pembroke Members. As part of this programme, each September there is a fortnight-long telephone campaign: these campaigns have been vital not only in increasing the financial support Pembroke receives annually but also in creating a stronger relationship between the College and its Members.
By making a gift to the Annual Fund, you are supporting any and every aspect of College life. While Pembroke is especially grateful for unrestricted gifts, which give the College greatest flexibility to meet areas of greatest need, it is also possible to direct a gift towards a specific activity within the scope of the Annual Fund.
The Annual Fund helps to underwrite four main areas of expenditure:
- Student Support - With £9,000 p.a. tuition fees and estimated £7,000 p.a. living costs, it is important that Pembroke provides support to ensure that our students do not face financial hardship and can attend the College regardless of their financial background.
- Student Experience - Being at university is about more than academic study, and Pembroke has over 30 clubs and societies, from PCBC, to the Pembroke Players, to the Stokes Society.
- Teaching - The Annual Fund helps Pembroke’s efforts to recruit and retain leading academics, for example by supporting the Fellows’ Research Fund. These talented people not only conduct world-changing research, but teach students in supervisions – the cornerstone of a Cambridge education.
- College Environment -Pembroke’s tranquil and stable environment is conducive to study. Gifts made to the Annual Fund contribute to the upkeep and renovation of the College’s facilities and buildings, ancient and modern.
