The Woolf Institute is recognised internationally for its expertise in researching and understanding relations between Jews, Christians and Muslims and with others in the communities in which they live. Our primary aim is to answer practical and theoretical questions concerning aspects of identity, culture and practice and to translate these into policy recommendations and outreach activities that improve relations between those of different beliefs.
For over 20 years we have been working towards building tolerance and foster understanding between religion and society. In order to continue creating practical outputs from our research and have a positive impact on society well into the future, we need to raise £35 million in endowment and other gifts. We aim to do so by the time we celebrate our 35th Anniversary in 2033 – 35 by 35.
The Woolf Institute's vision is a world in which collaborative discussion and constructive engagement can overcome prejudice and intolerance. It combines teaching, scholarship and outreach, focusing on Jews, Christians and Muslims, to build tolerance and foster understanding between religion and society.
The Woolf Institute welcomes gifts to support scholarships and bursaries for its PhD, MPhil, sabbatical and online students. Gifts of all sizes make a very real difference and you may choose to give for current expenditure or towards endowment for student support.
Events are a key part of sharing the Woolf Institute's work, findings and ethos with society, moving us further towards a world in which collaborative discussion and constructive engagement can overcome prejudice and intolerance.
Research is at the heart of the Woolf Institute's work, it informs and develops the teaching, public education, online education and media activities by which the Institute aims to foster and increase understanding between religion and society around the world.
The Woolf Institute offers a range of teaching to people with a variety of interests and needs relating to interfaith dialogue, interactions and understanding.
The Woolf Institute hosts events throughout the year that are open to our supporters.
