Regular Giving - 1541 Society • The King's School, Canterbury

Regular Giving – 1541 Society

The 1541 Society is our regular giving club for parents, OKS and friends who support King’s with a regular annual, quarterly, or monthly gift.

We are enormously grateful for the support of all those who have already given, or pledged to give, on a regular basis. Each donation (regardless of size) is greatly appreciated, as collectively a huge impact is made which provides the school with a reliable source of philanthropic income.


Currently the 1541 Society supports the Charter Awards and brings us ever closer to our goal of increasing the number of full bursary places at the school to 50 by 2041.

As a thank you, all members of the 1541 Society join an important network of like-minded individuals, receiving regular updates on the impact of their support and the progress of the Charter Awards. Members will also receive a limited edition print produced by Jayne, our first Charter Awards Bursary Pupil, and a yearly invite to an exclusive drinks event at the School.

“If every OKS gave as little as £5 per week for 1 year, with Gift Aid, we would fund 3.5 full bursary placed for talented children, forever. Even if this was our only source of donations, this would mean we would achieve the Charter Awards goal 7 years before our target!”

How to Give

We welcome gifts of every size whether they are regular monthly, quarterly or annual gifts, single donations or gifts left in wills. Every contribution makes a difference.


Visit King’s
