Success: Our Alumni Unlock £50,000 for Catz!

Success: Our Alumni Unlock £50,000 for Catz!

With 20% of our alumni making donations in the 2015-16 financial year, our community was one of the most generous in Oxford. This support has had a powerful impact on our students: world class tutorial teaching, financial help for 1 in 5 undergraduates and nearly 1 in 10 postgraduates, and much more!

This year, one of our alums challenged us to reach these amazing results once again. They pledged to make a generous donation of £50,000 if 20% of our community give to Catz by the end of the current financial year.

We are so pleased to announce that our alumni have made it happen! The College wants to extend a massive ‘thank you’ to all those who contributed – we’ve received gifts from over 2,000 individuals over the past year, surpassing last year’s 20% giving rate and allowing us to unlock the remarkable £50,000 pledge.

The Master, Professor Roger Ainsworth, commented: “I’m delighted with the support we have received for this campaign. Every gift, however large or small, makes a great difference to the College, and the fact that our alumni have come together to unlock this brilliant £50,000 pledge for Catz is truly inspiring.

The donations we receive will have a powerful impact, helping to keep our first class education open to students from all backgrounds. Further details can be found in our inaugural Donor Report.
