Ways to Donate

The support of our alumni and friends is very important to the College. It is a key part of our strategy to increase the funding available to our students, and to develop the best possible academic and pastoral environment for their study.

The Mission of the Wolfson Alumni Office is to expand financial support for graduate students, post doctoral fellows and the wider research community at Wolfson College. Oxford undergraduates have told us they come to Wolfson for their graduate degrees because we do so much more for them than other colleges.

Our core objective is to achieve greater participation in the College’s events and activities and to expand resources to support members’ needs.

Thank you for your continuing commitment and ongoing generosity. All gifts to the College, large or small, make an important and positive contribution to the future of Wolfson.

Please send a cheque to Americans for Oxford, an American 501c3 charity, with clear instructions that it is for Wolfson College (include postal address: Linton Road, Oxford, OX2 6UD). You may also use the online giving method offered by Americans for Oxford.
