Making a regular gift - why donate?

By donating to the Wadham Fund, you share our commitment to opening doors to the brightest young minds from all backgrounds.

Your contribution enables us to bring inquisitive school pupils to Wadham and open up the possibilities of an Oxford education. It also helps us break down financial barriers and fulfil potential – through means-tested bursaries, hardship grants and graduate scholarships.

Above all, your generosity enables us to sustain excellence by supporting world-class research. Better still, by setting up a regular gift, you give us the financial stability to continue providing access to excellent facilities and a world-class education, now and in the future. The funding we receive every year is vital to our ability to support our students and the costly tutorial system.

This year has been challenging for everyone, including the College. With enormous pressure on Wadham’s finances, donations of all sizes to the Wadham Fund, which includes our Covid-19 appeal to support additional student hardship, will help shield the College endowment from the economic downturn.

Please help us give to others the opportunities that the College once gave you by making a gift to the Wadham Fund. What better way to do it than by participating in our Giving Day, 12-13 November?  Want to kick-off our Giving Day with an early donation?

We work with schools to encourage the most gifted pupils, from all backgrounds, to raise their aspirations and we support these young people as they pursue their dreams of higher education. More

Sustaining excellence

Our academics play a pivotal role in training and nurturing our students to fulfil their potential. As world-leading scholars, Wadham tutors and graduate students are changing the way we look at the world and improving it for generations to come.
