Morley has a long and proud tradition of fundraising. Our founder Emma Cons first secured support from Liberal MP Samuel Morley to fund evening classes at the Royal Victoria Theatre, the Old Vic, in the early 1880’s.
As the founding benefactor of the College, Samuel Morley was a well-known philanthropist who inspired others to invest to provide accessible learning to working men and women on an equal basis, establishing the charitable remit of the College which continues to this day.
That spirit of rallying support and raising funds to build, maintain and rebuild the college helped, to establish Morley as one of the UK’s foremost centres for life-long learning. Now as a three centre college, that same spirit continues as we embrace significant new fundraising opportunities across all three Teaching Centres, in Waterloo, North Kensington and Chelsea.
