Durham University is founded on philanthropy. The University was established through a generous gift by Bishop van Mildert in 1832, a gift that included Durham Castle and much of the land and buildings we still occupy today. Since then, the loyalty and generosity of the friends of the University have factored in establishing Durham as one of the very best universities in the United Kingdom. As we begin the countdown to our 200th anniversary, we are determined to reconfirm the centrality of our relationship with our friends, alumni and benefactors. With your support Durham can compete with, and take its place among, the elite group of the world’s leading universities.
