This year’s Giving Day featured inspiring and heartfelt videos from our on-site College community, as well as ‘why I #LoveMansfield’ messages from alumni.  We had a wonderful rendition of ‘Love Changes Everything’ by the College choir and enjoyed stories and photos from our ‘Met at Mansfield’ couples who kindly shared with us how Mansfield was, literally, the place where they found love.  

With Mansfield bathed in spring sunshine, our on-site community helped unlock £4,000 of donations from some of our generous Giving Day Challenge Supporters, by helping the Principal to create a heart shape on the Quad and taking photos with the #LoveMansfield Instagram frame. Online, Mansfield’s alumni and friends helped to unlock further challenge funding by kindly making a gift.  

To date, over £110,000 has been donated by our generous supporters for this year’s priority projects: Mansfield Matters, which supports all aspects of student life, and the Sanctuary Scholarship, which supports students who have been displaced by war. We would like to thank everyone who helped to make this Giving Day a huge success. Together, our supporters are helping Mansfield to break down barriers and provide the tools and resources needed for students to thrive here. 

“It was my dream to come to Oxford and learn from some of the world’s leading academics. When I was accepted to study here, I was so close to not being able to go. It was only thanks to the kind and generous Mansfield supporters that my dream could become a reality and not just an anecdote. And thanks to Giving Day supporters, more students will now benefit from the kind of support that I have received, so they too can pursue their ambitions.”
