Giving Health

Giving Health is the RCP's ongoing fundraising appeal to raise philanthropic donations to fund key areas.

The O'Donoghue Wall

The RCP has launched a charitable appeal to support the establishment of our new centre of excellence in Liverpool – RCP at The Spine.

RCP at The Spine will be leading quality improvement in healthcare in a pioneering atmosphere of collaboration and partnership. At the heart of a vibrant scientific community, it will transform our reach and facilities for fellows and members in the north.

Donations of £800 or more will be recognized with an inscription on the O'Donoghue Wall. Gifts can be made in one lump sum or by pledging to give monthly for 12, 24, or 36 months.

Donations can be made via credit/debit card here, cheque, or standing order. Please contact the Development Team at development@rcp.ac.uk for more information.

Why give?

The RCP is a registered charity, run by doctors, that is wholly independent of political and government influence. This allows the college to act on health matters entirely based on evidence, lobby on public health issues, and advocate best healthcare practice on both the national and international level.

We use all our charitable support to fund research, training and conserve our heritage collections – all in the aim of improving healthcare.

The Linacre Wall

To honour the achievements of 500 years of medicine, and to create a lasting legacy for the future, we are asking you to contribute to a fundraising appeal by adding your name to our new Linacre Wall.

The Linacre Wall has pride of place at the entrance to our Grade I listed Regent’s Park home, with the aim of inspiring today’s RCP fellows, members and other supporters to continue Thomas Linacre’s mission of 'giving health' to the world – and to leave their mark on this great institution through a permanent, physical monument.

Other ways to give

UK and international donors

Gifts can be made by cheque, electronic funds transfer, credit card or by standing order/direct debit. Unfortunately, we are unable to offer tax-efficient giving other than in the US. Please contact development@rcp.ac.uk for more information on how to donate.

Gifts to the RCP are eligible for Gift Aid.

US donors

Tax-efficient donations can be made to the ‘Royal College of Physicians’ via the British Schools and Universities Foundation. Donors wishing to have a US tax receipt should visit the British Schools and Universities Foundation webpage for more information.

A 501c3 gift receipt will be issued to you within three months. Gifts can be made by cheque or by wire transfer. Full details are available by contacting the Development Office.

Legacy giving

  1. RCP has a long history of legacy giving dating back to our first president, Thomas Linacre, who bequeathed his home to the college in 1524. Leaving the college a legacy will have a powerful and lasting impact on the charitable work that we do, and support physicians in the future to provide better healthcare for patients.
