Young Univ Challenge

In 2019, two Old Members agreed to match any funds given by Young Univ to Univ North. If together young Old Members could give £250,000, then the OMs would give another £250,000 — a very generous gift, and a great way for the under 35s to make their mark.

Gifts from YU will also benefit from another OM matching scheme. With this in place, a gift of e.g. £20 becomes £60 for the College. It an amazing opportunity to increase the impact of your giving.

Your peers have already raised £220,000, so there is only £30,000 to go. If our target is reached then The Lodge at Univ North will be funded by Young Univ!

Here is the architects’ design for the inside of the Lodge.

The community’s list of donors will greet you as you enter Univ North.

The Lodge will be accessed from Banbury Road and students will now get the welcome you associate with the High:

We’d be very grateful for your help!

There are two great ways to participate.

If you can manage £13.34/month for five years, this combines with the match to generate a combined gift of £3,000 for the College, and you will join your peers on the donor board in the new Lodge.

Take up the *SPECIAL CHALLENGE* for our June 2021 appeal:

If 15 donors in any class give a gift of any size to Univ North, then a student bedroom will be forever known by your year!
