The Cambridge Festival of Ideas is funded through core University funding, corporate sponsorship, charitable trusts and in-kind support. Dozens of departments, Colleges and partner organisations provide staff time and equipment for free, however it is still necessary to fundraise extensively to keep the activities free-of-charge to the general public.

You can help support the Cambridge Festival of Ideas in its mission to fuel the public’s interest in and involvement with the arts, humanities and social sciences in a unique and inspiring way for free by making a small donation:
