Gifts of any size to the Colfe’s Charitable Trust Development Fund add up and make a lasting impact on our students. Our life-changing scholarship and pupil support programmes can only continue thanks to the generous gifts of our donors.

You can give online by following one of the links below and making a recurring or a one-off gift to one of our priority funds or donate an unrestricted gift to be used at the Headmaster’s discretion.

Alternatively, download a Colfe’s Donation Form and return it by to the Colfe’s Alumni Relations & Development Office or email it to

The Leatherseller Scholarship Programme
For more than 10 years the Leatherseller Scholarship Programme has enabled us to offer full academic scholarships to disadvantaged pupils of outstanding potential joining the Colfe’s Sixth Form from local state schools.  It is essential that this programme is self-sustaining into the future, combining grants from the Leathersellers’ Foundation with gifts from hundreds of donors.




Headmaster’s Discretionary Fund
Donations to this unrestricted fund enable us to remain flexible in an ever-changing world. The Headmaster’s Discretionary Fund is used to provide support wherever the need is the greatest, allowing us to address the most urgent requirements and emerging needs of the school. Support from our global community of alumni and friends means we can offer bursaries and short-term hardship funding to pupils whose financial circumstances have changed significantly since they joined the school.



The Ukrainian Relief Fund
As the war in Ukraine began, and families fled the war-torn country for the UK, Colfe’s launched a special programme to offer free school places to children of Ukrainian families. Our aim is to continue supporting these pupils’ incidental costs for as long as is necessary.
