Giving Circles

Birkbeck has three Giving Circles, which are our way of saying thank you for your support. The value of your support has never been more important. By continuing to work together, we can ensure the continuation of Birkbeck's unique contribution to the educational landscape of the UK, Europe and the world. 

Gifts can be made on a monthly or annual basis, so you may, for example, choose to be part of our Master’s Circle by making a monthly gift of £83.33 by direct debit. A £1000 donation will also attract £250 of Gift Aid per annum. Make a gift to Birkbeck.
