The Harding Challenge

To encourage even more alumni and friends to donate in support of Cambridge students, a new fund, thanks to the extraordinary generosity of David and Claudia Harding, has been established that could double the value of your gift.

The Harding Challenge fund is part of David and Claudia Harding’s £100 million gift to collegiate Cambridge’s student support initiative, announced in February 2019. Their wish is to inspire new donors to collegiate Cambridge, resulting in greater support for students throughout the University.

If you are a first-time donor, your gift to Corpus for any aspect of student support (which includes undergraduates, postgraduates and wider student life and wellbeing) will unlock an equal amount from the Harding Challenge fund. This matched sum will be directed to undergraduate students in greatest need across Cambridge.

Students at Corpus will not only benefit from your kind donation in the specific area you choose to support, but students across the University could also benefit from the funds unlocked by you.

All donations of up to £100,000 from new donors are eligible.

To make your donation and take advantage of the Harding Challenge for the benefit of students at Corpus and across Cambridge, please go to our make a donation page.
