Durham University Campaign Board

Under the leadership of Hild-Bede alumnus Guy Weldon, Durham University’s Campaign Board supports and encourages impactful philanthropic engagement with the University.

Leading by example, the Board advocates for Durham’s priorities, enables the delivery of transformational change, and encourages ambition. Board members serve as Ambassadors for Durham’s vision and goals. The Board will lead the development of a major new fundraising Campaign, to culminate in the University’s bicentenary year of 2032.
