    Wadham students and the Warden ask: What makes you WadhamProud?

Last year hundreds of alumni helped make Wadham’s Giving Day an incredible success, donating over £146,000 and sharing a stream of creative and inspiring posts across our social media channels. You made us all tremendously #WadhamProud. 

This year we hope alumni and friends all over the world will join us in supporting our second Giving Day, which will be held over 12-13 November.

Our theme again this year is WadhamProud - what makes you WadhamProud? The Warden, Ken Macdonald, QC, shares what makes him WadhamProud for this year's Giving Day in this video.

Watch for our social media posts and join us by telling us what makes you #WadhamProud on Facebook, LinkedIn, Instagram and other social media platforms, or email us.

You can also share your favourite Wadham memories and any photos you have from your time here over social media or by emailing the team for us to share.  

Like last year, your gifts will support Wadham’s pioneering Access to Excellence programme, offering vital support to applicants and students who need it most. The Access to Excellence programme includes our current Covid-19 Student Hardship appeal, and your gifts will help students who are facing additional hardship caused by the pandemic. Alumni and friends can also make a difference by adding their names to the donor wall in Wadham’s soon-to-open Access Centre. With enormous pressure on Wadham’s finances, donations of all sizes on our Giving Day will help shield the College endowment from the economic downturn. 

We appreciate that it has been a challenging year for everyone, and that not everyone can donate to our Giving Day this year. We have been inspired by how the Wadham community has come together to interact and support each other throughout this time. Your involvement on social media (please use the hashtag #WadhamProud) will ensure that our Giving Day is a celebration of everything uniquely special about Wadham, so please support it in whatever ways you can this year.  

You can keep in touch with news around our Giving Day here.  

Want to get involved? Please email us with any questions about how you can help.  

Thanks in advance for being part of Wadham’s second Giving Day!
