Building the future

The college admitted its latest Fellow Benefactor at a reunion dinner on Saturday September
22nd.

Fellow Benefactor status is Selwyn’s highest recognition for philanthropy, marking a gift of
at least £1m. We were delighted to welcome Robin Jeffs to this cohort following his donation to the
college’s new library and auditorium project. Mr Jeffs, who is an alumnus now living in
California, has asked for his contribution to be named in memory of our distinguished former Fellow
Donald Welbourn.

Mr Jeffs becomes the fourth Fellow Benefactor since the creation of the role in 2016. Other holders
of the title are Jim Dickinson, Robert Martin and Katya Speciale. We are extremely grateful to them
for their support for future generations at Selwyn.
