The 1846 Club

Join the 1846 Club

Hatfield College was founded in 1846. Since then, thousands of students have become lifelong Hatfielders, remaining part of our unique college community.

The 1846 Club has been launched so that Hatfielders can continue to make an impact on the life of the college through regular giving to the Hatfield Trust.

By pledging to give £18.46 annually, quarterly, or monthly, you will ensure that Hatfield can provide extra opportunities and experiences for our students, enabling them to gain the most out of their time at university, and to prepare them to make a meaningful difference in the world long after they graduate.

There are four tiers of support: Member, Partner, Guardian, and Patron.

Each tier comes with different benefits to donors to thank you for your generous support.

Simply choose below which level of support you would like to pledge to the Trust and you will make a real difference to the lives of current and future generations of Hatfield students.
