Support us

The RCP is a registered charity, run by doctors, that is wholly independent of political and government influence. 

This enables the college to make evidence-based health decisions, advocate for public health, and promote top healthcare practices nationally and globally.

Making a difference

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

Legacy giving

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.

If you have any questions about legacy giving, or would like to request more information please contact us and we will be delighted to help.


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.
