1553 Society

The 1553 Society is our regular giving club for all Old Tonbridgians, parents and friends of the school. It is a way to grow the collective efforts of our Tonbridge community in support of the school without relying on large individual donations. The emphasis is on maximising the number of regular donors, irrespective of their individual contributions, relying on the laws of large numbers to deliver a significant recurring value of support.

We are enormously grateful for the support of all those who have given a one-off gift or pledged to give on a regular basis. It does not matter how small or large, every gift makes a difference and brings us closer to doubling the number of bursary recipients at Tonbridge School.

I promise to continue to make the most of the opportunities available to me, because I will always be grateful for the superb education I was afforded at Tonbridge School.

Donations we have received from our community have made the School what it is today. The 1553 Society recognises those who support Tonbridge with a regular annual, quarterly or monthly gift. All members will be part of an important network of like-minded individuals and will be invited to the Headmaster’s Annual Drinks Reception as well as being recognised in the Impact Report.

Both your individual and collective generosity can help us make a huge difference. If just 15% of parents and Old Tonbridgians gave £15.53 a month for 5 years, we could raise over £1m for Tonbridge. Join over 400 supporters who give regularly.
