In 2012 the College set an ambitious target to raise £25 million by 2018 to support and improve College life. Thanks to the generosity of Orielenses and friends around the world we successfully met this target in July 2017. Since the campaign was launched in 2012, more than 1400 Orielenses and friends have raised £25 million pounds to support Oriel, including over £12 million in legacies and £4.7 million in unrestricted gifts.

We want to extend our sincere thanks to all our supporters for the goodwill they hold towards the College, without their generosity this simply would not have been possible.
