Frequently asked questions

What is Oxford Saïd Giving Day?

Tuesday June 2021 is Oxford Saïd Giving Day. We’re creating a Giving Day – well, 36 hours – to have some fun, to connect with people and for us all to show how much we care about the School.

What makes a Giving Day different from any other day?

Gifts made towards the Giving Day, unlike donations made during the rest of the year, will have an even greater impact than usual.

Oxford Said Giving Day is a day to know more about what we’re doing. We know it’s easy to get distracted by other things, so we’re creating this one day now for us all to come together and remember why we care, to communicate with other people and to encourage everyone to give so that we can all continue doing what we do best.

How do I get involved?

In the run up to Oxford Saïd Giving Day, you can become an ambassador and help us spread the word through your networks.

How can I give tax-efficiently from the US?

We can count donations made via our North American Office ( in the next 36 hours into the Giving Day totals. Use the drop-down menu to find Saïd Business School and in the text box to write Giving Day or include the fund that you wish to give towards for Giving Day.

Just email
to let us know that you have made the donation and the amount, and the Giving Team can manually add your donation to the total and add you to the Donor Wall during working hours.

How do I know my donation is secure?

Saïd Business School uses an offsite payment processor called “Stripe” to process credit card donations. Stripe has been audited by a PCI-certified auditor and is certified to PCI Service Provider Level 1. This is the most stringent level of certification available in the payments industry.
