Supporting Somerville

Your support plays a crucial role in securing Somerville’s future.

Every gift, however large or small, helps to ensure that Somerville can maintain its tradition of providing an outstanding academic and personal education for exceptionally able students, regardless of background. Your help is deeply valued by all of us here.

There are a number of ways your gift can support our work. The Somerville Annual Fund underpins the core activities of the College by directly supporting our students, our academics, the Tutorial system of teaching and the physical fabric and facilities of the College.

Our crowdfunding platform allows you to give directly to specific causes that we are supporting. Past campaigns have included financial assistance for the members of the Afghan Women’s Orchestra in their first trip to the UK, during which they were hosted by the College; help for the library in expanding and conserving their collections; and most recently, our new Scholarship for Refugees.

We also embark on campaigns with the vision of raising our profile as a centre of ground-breaking multidisciplinary research and teaching, supporting our students, and raising aspirations and lowering unfair barriers to ensure that talented pupils can come to Somerville and excel, regardless of their financial background.
