The 2021 Bursary Appeal

If you look at the history of Dulwich College, it shows that this is a school that has been at its strongest when it is open to talented pupils from all backgrounds. The contribution of philanthropy is vital to helping even more boys benefit from a Dulwich education.

Since launching the annual bursary appeal in 2019, we have been heartened by the number of OAs, parents, staff and other friends of the school who have chosen to make gifts in support of bursaries. It has demonstrated the real impact that can be made when the whole community comes together to make a difference. We are deeply grateful to all those who choose to support the school.

In these difficult times we realise that not everyone is in a position to make a donation – but, to those who feel able, we hope you will consider making a single or regular gift to help us offer the gift of education to talented pupils who might not otherwise be able to come to Dulwich.

"The impact of bursaries cannot be overstated. Bursarial awards are transformational for the bursary holders and their families. Whenever I look at the boys when they are assembled in the Great Hall, I feel a great sense of pride and gratitude. Proud of the cohort of boys that we have managed to build; grateful to all those donors whose generosity has made this possible.”
