The year 2023 celebrated the 25th anniversary of the establishment of the Woolf Institute. To mark this incredible achievement, we launched the Friends of the Woolf.

Our Friends play an important role in supporting the work of the Institute and their contributions are greatly appreciated.

By becoming a Friend, you will enable us to make that difference - we, in turn, promise to spend your donation wisely.

For further information, contact the Development Team at

Donate a minimum of £10 per month to become a Friend of the Woolf.

Every gift has a big impact on enabling us to continue our work:

  • A gift of £25 per month helps us to organise regular webinars from the Woolf Digital Festival to standalone events on wide-ranging subjects and collaborative monthly series;
  • A gift of £50 per month enables our Research Hub to thrive, supporting our MPhil and PhD scholars, the inspirational leaders of the future;
  • A gift of £75 per month allows us to offer additional teaching and training opportunities relating to interfaith dialogue, interactions and understanding;
  • A gift of £100 per month helps us engage in diverse research projects which give us the knowledge we need to fulfil the mission of the Institute.

Or become a Lifetime Friend of the Woolf with a one-off donation of £1,998, acknowledging the year of our establishment.

Friends of the Woolf benefits

As a Friend of the Woolf, you will receive advance notice and priority booking to selected events, invitations to Friends-only occasions and social gatherings during the year where Friends have the opportunity to engage with staff and students.

Once 100 new Friends of the Woolf have joined us, we will:

  • open the Friends' Lounge - overlooking the grounds of Westminster College and our impressive marble sculpture, Tree of Life: Encounter;
  • provide Friends with the opportunity to browse our Library collection and spend time in this state-of-the-art contemporary space for reading.

And, of course, you will receive the membership pin, a re-imagination of our beautiful Confusion installation.
