Where would you like to direct your gift?
All gifts are processed by the University of Oxford Development Trust (OUDT). If your wish is to support a college, OUDT shall transfer your gift directly to the relevant college. In all other cases, your kind gift will be held in the specific OUDT fund whose purposes most closely correspond to the area you wish to support and shall then be applied in accordance with the purposes of the relevant fund. Details of the funds can be found at the OUDT website. Wishes expressed shall not give rise to new trusts or other legally-binding obligations. Every gift will contribute towards the Oxford Thinking Campaign.
The objects of OUDT are to procure, assist and secure the advancement of education, learning, teaching, scholarship and research at or in connection with the University of Oxford, its colleges and societies. OUDT is administered by the University and established for a special purpose in connection with the University. It is therefore an exempt charity for the purpose of charity legislation. As such, it has full charitable status; albeit it is exempt from the requirement to register as a charity with the Charity Commission, and therefore does not have a Charity reference number.
