Exceptional students come to Somerville from all backgrounds and all over the world in order to gain the benefit of outstanding teaching and a dynamic, supportive community. To maintain that equality of experience for all our students is a constant challenge – especially when state funding continues to decline throughout the university sector.
Your help is vital in allowing us to remain a cutting-edge academic institution, an inclusive community and a beacon of hope for young people.
Ways to Support Somerville
Here are just a few of the different ways you can support Somerville.
- Set up a Direct Debit
- Make a one-off gift
- Make a Postal gift
- Donate shares or assets
- Legacies and Planned Giving
Have you considered matched giving? Many organisations and businesses today have agreed to match the donations made by their employees to worthy causes. Please contact your Human Resources department to find out if they operate a matching gift scheme. In most cases, the company will match your donation pound for pound up to a specific level; a handful of organisations even double-match. If your employer does participate in the scheme, they will be able to give you a form to fill in confirming the gift you have made, which you can then send to us confirming receipt of the gift.
Thank you for your support. Whatever the reason, whatever the scale, we will ensure that any gift you make to Somerville is used correctly: in maintaining the excellence of our teaching, the quality of our learning and the warmth of our student experience.
