Gift Recognition

Every gift to the College, including unrestricted donations, goes directly towards projects that have an immediate impact on current students and other members of the College.  We are immensely grateful for every donation received.

“It is a privilege to give a little back in return for having been given such a wonderful experience and opportunity. I hope all alumni will support, little or much.”

 Alan Lovell (Classics, 1972)


Donor Recognition

All donors who have given any amount to College and those who make gifts in kind are listed in the Donor ReportThanks to You. All donors who have given to College in the last 12 months are invited to attend an Annual Donor Reception.

Funding Opportunities for Northgate

All donors who have given £2k or more during the 450th Anniversary Campaign, except those that wish to remain anonymous, will be recognised on a Donor Board in the new building on the Northgate site. The building project allows us to recognise exceptional gifts in number of ways, starting from funding individual student rooms at £15k. Please contact us for more information on donor recognition in the new site.
