King's College Foundation

For King's, financial independence is reliant on the philanthropic support of its community of past and current parents, Old Collegians and their families, and many others who appreciate the value of a King's College education.

The King's College Foundation is the vehicle providing financial security for the future and its goal is to create a substantial financial base to ensure the ongoing independence of King's.
