Guardians of the College are vital to us and the 125th Anniversary - please consider becoming a Guardian of Mansfield and help us to secure the College's future.
A Guardian of the College will have contributed the sum of £50,000 (or more) towards the 125th Anniversary Programme (methods of giving can be altered to suit you) and will, subsequently, be invited to join the College Development Board, chaired by Guy Hands.
We would be delighted to hear from anyone considering becoming a Guardian; you will be helping to secure our future. We are able to advise you on the most tax efficient way to support Mansfield and become a Guardian of the College.
We have 12 Guardians under the 125th Anniversary programme Since August 2007, all of whom have joined the Development Board.
Please read the comments from three of our Guardians.
History 1972 - 1975
Graduated from Mansfield with a First Class Honours Degree; now a Partner at Hunton and Williams. He is listed in The Best Lawyers in America for Business Litigation Law. Stephen has been involved in such high profile cases as the two-year representation of a Bosnian Croat Politician at the Hague. Stephen has sent us the following statement about supporting Mansfield:
'I am privileged to be able to give back something to my College, which has given so much to me. I do feel under a serious moral obligation to the College, and I am determined to do everything in my power to support it in the future. It seems to me that graduates do need to reflect upon what has contributed to their material advantages in later life, and to try, in their own way, to pave the way for others to be able to enjoy similar opportunities. For a College as small as Mansfield, individual donations take on relatively greater significance than, say, donations to Harvard Law School, which is so wealthy that even significant individual donations may be obscured by the waves of cash that roll in to that institution. For would-be Mansfield donors, however, one great attraction is that a person's donations will not just get lost in the shuffle, but really can have a positive impact on the future of the College. I hope mine, and others like mine, may do just that.'
