We’re delighted to announce that over 36 hours our first ever Giving Day raised a total of £114,381 for Selwyn students.


Alumni and friends donated to help current students make the most of their time in Cambridge, as well as sharing memories from their own time at the college. A huge thank you to everyone who has already taken part. If you would like to add your support to Giving Day, please visit at any time and select Student Support – Giving Day on the drop down.


These are some comments from students and alumni about why philanthropy matters:


"During my matriculation year we were very lucky to our Christmas dinner provided by donors. This made me feel so at home and part of a family that I want to pass that feeling on."


"Thankful for the wonderful memories I have had during my time at Selwyn, and for the generous support I was offered during a particularly challenging time."


"It's such a pleasure to support an institution that values excellence and a down-to-earth sense of community in equal measure. Floreat Selwyn!"
