Schumacher College: Raising Funds for a Sustainable Future

Schumacher College: Raising Funds for a Sustainable Future

For almost 30 years Schumacher College has been providing innovative education for ecological and social change, offering a transformative experience to more than 35,000 alumni from around the world. Now, we need your help to build a solid foundation for the College for its next thirty years, to expand our offer and to be able to reach even more people.

We have received a generous gift of £2 million to repair the Old Postern roof – a record gift for both Schumacher College and the Dartington Trust.  Now we are hoping to match fund that with an additional £2 million as the first step our 30th anniversary capital fundraising appeal.

Your financial support now will help us to:

  Complete a restoration of the interior of the Grade II* listed Old Postern building and surrounding grounds
  Introduce solar power to the accommodation blocks:
  Obtain a second biomass boiler
  Introduce a grey water system
  Insulate the windows and doors
  Improve the kitchens and dining area
  Begin building a scholarship fund

We are anticipating the completion of the repairs to the Old Postern roof will coincide with the 30th anniversary of Schumacher College in May of 2021.  At present many staff and students are living and learning in a variety of different places whilst the Old Postern begins to undergo much needed attention. We have repurposed buildings (both new and old) and have delved into the important work of building a foundation of care both for ourselves and for the broader world. We think you will agree that the work of Schumacher College is more relevant now than ever.
