Research shows clear links between the provision of well-resourced learning environments and students’ educational outcomes, which is why it is important to look ahead and provide inspirational spaces to help our students to fulfil their own unique potential.

The College currently spends in excess of £11m per year on the upkeep of its heritage buildings alone. Fundraising plays a crucial role in helping to support vital new buildings and facilities. Your donations into this fund support both the conservation of our historical buildings and investment into innovative enhancements for the future. 

Philanthropy played a vital role in the creation of the largest single development since Eton’s foundation by boosting the College’s own investment to create an inspirational new set of buildings. The Bekynton Field development was opened by His Royal Highness, The Prince of Wales and as well as providing 40 new classrooms, includes the 300-seater lecture theatre and debating chamber, the Jafar Hall, and the Jafar Gallery, which is now home to The Eton Museum of Antiquities. The generosity of donors also allowed Eton to employ some of the UK’s finest craftsmen and women to work on this unique project.
