May Giving Challenge
113 donations during May 2015 have unlocked £10,000
Three generous old members of Magdalen threw down the gauntlet to challenge all young alumni to donate to the New Library Fund in May 2015. If 100 alumni made a one-off donation during the month, they promised to give Magdalen £10,000. They also pledged to match every new gift to the Library Fund in May pound for pound, doubling the value of any donations made during the month.
To add an extra incentive, the President and Fellows offered two places at the top of the tower to one lucky donor on May Morning 2016. Everyone who made a donation during the month was entered into a ballot for these tickets.
All donors to the New Library Fund will be invited to the Grand Opening of the library in Spring 2016. The New Library development is well under way. Find out more. The successful campaign took the fundraising total for the New Library over the £7m mark during May, leaving just £500k to raise.
Fundraising continues for the Library re-development – click here to make your gift.
