Will you support Wolfson’s students and postdocs in their research by making a regular donation to the College?

Gifts at all levels – no matter how large or small – can transform a researcher’s prospects and sustain world-changing expertise. For example:

  • £19.66 per month would provide a bursary towards essential fieldwork, archival research or conference costs.
  • £196.66 per quarter would fund a hardship award for a student or postdoc in unexpected financial distress.
  • £1,966 per year would fund a significant living-expenses scholarship to a student otherwise unable to study at Oxford.

Online Giving is our recommended method: you can donate directly to the Wolfson 1966 Fund here.You can set up regular online giving, or make a single gift with credit or debit card.

If you are in the USA, the most tax efficient way to donate online is through Americans for Oxford, a 501c3 organisation. To donate online through AFO, select Wolfson College from the drop-down menu and specify that your gift is for the Wolfson 1966 Fund in the further information box.

If you would like to donate by direct bank transfer please contact the Wolfson Alumni Office and we will provide you with the details.

Donations can also be made by cheque, payable to Wolfson College and sent to:

The Wolfson Alumni Office
Wolfson College, Linton Road
