Development priorities

The Development Office’s fundraising priorities are to ensure that St John's can continue to admit the best students - regardless of background - and to ensure that the College has the resources to provide the strongest possible environment for students to learn, explore and flourish.

In order to fund a progressive future, we will need to build an endowment in the region of £500 million. This will include ring-fenced funding for individual elements of the College, from student support and endowed Fellowships, to funds for the Choral Foundation, Field Sports and the LMBC.

When you make a donation, you can decide where to direct your gift. If you choose to make a gift for general purposes, your donation will be directed to the Annual Fund, for the area of greatest need.
