Future Foundations - The Campaign for Magdalene

Supporting Magdalene

Future Foundations - The Campaign for Magdalene is the College’s most ambitious fundraising endeavour to date.

Future Foundations – The Campaign for Magdalene was launched in March 2017 and we have had a fantastic response from Members and Friends. We have raised funds to support undergraduate bursaries (with help from the Harding Challenge), support postgraduate students and early career Fellows, build a new College Library and, looking further ahead, to restore the iconic Pepys Building.

For now, however, given the unprecedented and uncertain times we suddenly find ourselves in due to the global pandemic, have taken the decision to concentrate on raising funds to help our people. The students and academic staff suddenly facing unexpected and exceptional financial difficulties. We have created an Emergency Fund and your gifts will give the Senior Bursar the freedom to respond to immediate pressing needs swiftly and generously. Thank you very much for choosing to support us particularly at this difficult time. Every single gift will make a very real difference to your College now.

Magdalene has thrived on the generosity of supporters over the centuries and more Members and Friends are supporting the College today than ever before. Find out more about the Campaign.
