150th Anniversary Campaign

Launched in 2008, Fitzwilliam’s 150th Anniversary Campaign aimed to raise £20 million by 2019. The Campaign concluded on 31 July, 2019, and, thanks to the generosity of over 2000 donors we exceeded our target, raising £23.5 million.

Thank you to all who have supported us – each and every gift has made an impact to the dynamic, vibrant and evolving Fitzwilliam College community.

The Campaign’s objectives were:

  • to ensure that every student admitted can take up their place regardless of their financial means
  • to provide the best possible resources for study, teaching, learning and research
  • to expand and enrich the collegiate experience

The Campaign helped to fund the building of the stunning Olisa Library, the creation of the Upper Hall and the refurbishment of the gym. It funded the renovation of three staircases of student accommodation and work to repair and improve the Central Building's distinctive Lasdun Lantern Roof.

The Campaign also led to a big injection of money into funds which support students.

More information can be found in our Thank You booklet, which was distributed to donors.
