Frequently asked questions

What is Oxford Saïd Giving Day?

Giving Day is an annual 36-hour fundraising marathon where our community comes together to celebrate and support the individuals that make Oxford Saïd special. The 17 and 18 June 2024 is Oxford Saïd’s sixth Giving Day.

What makes a Giving Day different from any other day?

Participation is crucial on Giving Day and gifts of every size have a huge impact on the School. Giving Day is the one day of the year where your gift can go even further too, thanks to the generosity of our match funders and challenge gift donors. Gifts over £250 or $300 will also be recognised on the Giving Day Roll of Honour and all gifts (unless you choose to remain anonymous) will appear on the Donor Wall.

What does Giving Day raise money for?

Giving Day 2024 will be raising unrestricted funds. Unrestricted funds support the School’s core priorities, help provide student support, improve student experience via extra-curriculars, and crucially fund scholarships. With the help of our community, Giving Day 2024 is supporting the Rewley Scholarship which allows Oxford Saïd to attract the brightest and best candidates.
