Supporting Keble

Your support is vital to ensuring that future generations of students, no matter what their circumstances, can benefit from everything which Keble and Oxford offers.

The College relies heavily on its alumni and friends to support projects large and small. Over the last 9 years we have made significant progress with fundraising and participation.

The following pages provide an overview of our plans for the future, our fundraising priorities and how you can help. Follow the links to find out more information about the College 150th Anniversary Campaign, the Talbot Fund, the Talbot Society, Friends of the Chapel, the Keble Association and the Douglas Price Society.

The H B Allen Centre

With support from visionary donors eager to be at the heart of the development of higher education in the 21st century, we are taking another major step forward in anticipation of our 150th anniversary in 2020, by creating the The HB Allen Centre.

The Centre will be established on a site which is at the heart of the University, at the crossroads of the sciences, social sciences and humanities. The vision embraces a major centre for our graduate students, and new facilities to support Keble’s inter-disciplinary Advanced Studies Centre and other research and spin-out activities.

The Talbot Fund

Keble’s annual fund - The Talbot Fund - continues to flourish under the management of Camilla Matterson, Deputy Director of Development. In 2016-17 the total cash income reached over £1 million for the third year running. Go to the Talbot Fund to find out how these funds are being used to support our students, the College community and facilities.

The Society holds events annually in College. Click here to find out more about the DPS, the events and how through remembering Keble in your will you can help to secure the long-term future of the College.

Matching Gift Challenge

The University of Oxford has received a significant pledge of £75 million, from Christ Church alumnus Michael Moritz and his wife Harriet Heyman, towards the funding of bursaries for the most financially disadvantaged undergraduate students. The gift will be made to the University in three instalments of £25 million, the first of which has already been received. Each subsequent instalment is conditional upon the collegiate University raising a further £50 million for undergraduate student support. A gift to Keble College, directed to undergraduate student support, will count towards this challenge. You can learn more about the Moritz–Heyman Scholarships here.
