Welcome to Kent: The Philanthropy Story!

This blog aims to document the illustrious history of philanthropy and giving at the University of Kent, as part of a Beacon-funded project that will be published as a book in June 2015. It will contain fascinating snippets of my research in the University archives, newspaper articles, photographs, case studies and interview segments about the remarkable 50 year legacy of donations and community engagement at UKC.

Do you have a story about philanthropy at Kent that you think deserves telling? Let us know! Contact Dr. Triona Fitton¬†with your examples – any contributors will be offered a copy of the printed book, and an invitation to our conference on ‘Understanding Philanthropy’, University of Kent Canterbury Campus, 29th June 2015.
