Giving Tuesday 2017
Welcome to our campaign page for #GivingTuesday
Tuesday 28th November 2017 is “Giving Tuesday” – a global day of giving fuelled by the power of social media and collaboration.
Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving (in the US) and the widely recognised shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving.
How are we participating?
On 28th November 2017, six student volunteers will be phoning Nuffield Alumni based all over the world to discover and share College news and encourage alumni giving to our student funding campaign.
Thanks already to many of our alumni, we are fortunate to have already endowed four scholarships in perpetuity. Last month, as we opened admissions for the 2018 academic year, we made a commitment to underwrite funding for all students admitted to Nuffield. As part of this new commitment, we have launched a scholarship endowment fund in Economics in honour of Sir Tony Atkinson, former Warden and Fellow of Nuffield, who sadly passed away earlier this year.
We’re also thrilled to be able to say that every gift will be doubled through matched funding available from the College and or the University.
We’re looking forward to reaching out to and engaging with our alumni over the telephone on Tuesday 28th November. In the meantime, you can meet some of our student volunteers through following our Facebook or Twitter feeds. We’ll post a story about a new student every day up until the 28th.
