How to make a gift

The Venerable English College receives no independent source of income or funding from the Holy See, UK government or Church hierarchy. Apart from diocesan contributions for the training of seminarians, the College depends on generous donations and philanthropic support to cover its operating budget and for the preservation of its Archives and Heritage Collections.

There are a variety of options for making a financial investment in NAFVEC’s mission to support the VEC's seminarians and priests, as well as the Heritage Collections.
