Support St Anne’s

Giving to St Anne's

Since its founding, St Anne’s College has always been passionate about widening access to an Oxford Education. The College wants to be a diverse and inclusive community contributing to the University’s commitment to lead the world in education and research, a goal which your continued generosity helps us to strive towards. When making a gift to St Anne's, you may choose to support our Covid-19 Support Fund, our Access and Outreach Programme, Welfare, or the Boat Club, among other areas. If you don't mind where your gift goes and would like College to allocate it to our area of greatest need, you can allocate it to general student support via our Annual Fund.

Thank you to all our alumnae and friends.

Ongoing COVID-19 Support Fund

In 2020, we experienced an unprecedented Trinity Term, with all teaching being conducted online and many students stranded in College. In order to respond swiftly and fully to the situation, we created a Covid-19 Emergency Support Fund.

Since then, the situation has changed still further, and remains unpredictable. As a result of the pandemic, we are facing numerous academic, teaching, domestic, welfare and financial challenges which will be the case for some time to come.

The Annual Fund

Our Annual Fund is our area of greatest need and is so named because it is the fund that we draw on day after day, year after year to do the very things that make the College what it is. The Fund supports the tutorial education that is so central to the College education as well as bursaries, hardship funds, graduate scholarships, essential student welfare services, new books, and subsidies for our sports clubs and societies.

Welfare Support

Our students are faced with a growing number of concerns such as managing the transition to University, financial worries, family issues, homesickness, exam pressure and job applications. Some also experience physical and mental health conditions including anxiety, depression and problems sleeping and/or eating. As you can imagine, Welfare need is particularly heightened during the current situation. 

We have a team of students and staff available at any time of day or night to ensure that any issues can be talked through and that specialist help can be given if necessary.  Our Be Well, Do Well scheme, with termly events, promotes healthy bodies and minds, and mechanisms to help them cope day-to-day.  Our fundraising helps to ensure that we can continue to provide these events and fund the Welfare Team to ensure all students receive the help and advice they need.

"The hardship fund has helped at this difficult time and I really appreciate receiving this help from the college. It certainly helps me focus on what's important right now, which is completing my studies."

Access and Outreach

St Anne's has a strong outreach programme which aims to widen participation in higher education generally and access to Oxford specifically within our link regions. In 2019 we launched Aim for Oxford – an intensive support programme which works closely with disadvantaged students from their GCSEs through to starting at Oxford. The 2019 Giving Day enabled us to fund 40 students in the first year of their programme, which started in January 2020. We raised further funds in our 2020 Giving Day and received more applications than ever for the second year. Since then, the programme has gone from strength to strength and was a key priority at this year's Giving Day too. The programme includes workshops, a summer residential, and full application support. 

To provide for Aim for Oxford whilst continuing the College’s current outreach programme means we need to more than double our annual expenditure as it was before the programme was launched.  We need support to help fund the ongoing delivery of these programme, particularly given the additional student needs brought about by Covid-19.

boat club

St Anne's Boat Club

Participation in clubs and societies and other extra-curricular activity is an important part of life at St Anne’s, enhancing students’ time here and helping to build skills and qualities that stand them in good stead in later life.  Your support of the Boat Club (SABC) will enable it to grow and improve over the next five years with the long term ambition of buying a new boat and blades and progressing each of the Men’s and Women’s teams up the divisions in Torpids and Summer VIIIs.
