The Prep has a long tradition of giving back. In 1919 produce donated at the first Harvest Festival was taken to the Home for the Incurables at Crown Point and a few years later the Prep supported a cot at King’s College Hospital to provide free medical care for a local child.

With the support of current and present families and staff, we raised almost £20,000 making the Prep one of their top 10 fundraisers for men’s mental health in the UK and one of the top 100 worldwide.

It is our goal to create a contingency pot that can be used to support families and act as a communal fund which will enable all boys to continue to benefit from everything that Dulwich Prep London has to offer.
Help us make you proud
We are always looking for new ways to give back to our community and, in the process, making you proud of your old school. If you would like to help or have suggestions for other ways to give back, please do get in touch via email@example.com.
