During the last 10 years over 2,000 of you have generously pledged more than £1.8 million through the annual Telephone Fundraising Campaign, which has made a real and measurable difference to Fitzwilliam’s students. Thank you for your support.
We are looking forward to two upcoming telephone campaigns. We will be telephoning alumni in Canada and the USA in 8 to 13 December 2019 and alumni in East Asia 8 to 13 January 2020. Six student callers will speak to hundreds of alumni, who will be informed in advance of the campaign and its aims.
The Spring 2019 Telephone Campaign took place from 18 March to 1 April. 14 student callers enjoyed speaking to hundreds of alumni, sharing memories and experiences of the College today. Randeep Nag (MML 2015) has worked as a caller, and comments: “The telethon campaign was great fun. It was a pleasure to speak to alumni and I gained some valuable life and careers advice in the process!”
Many of the gifts donated over the years have supported our students directly by providing bursaries to assist them in their studies and in making the most of their time at Cambridge. This financial support helps to encourage brilliant students with the potential to go on to achieve great things, but who might otherwise be put off by the cost of a degree. Thanks in a large measure to the generosity of alumni, the College was able to make 1,119 financial awards to our students last year.
