The 1379 Circle was set up to recognise and thank those who make annual gifts of £1,379 or more to New College.

You can designate your support to a variety of areas - the 1379 Circle booklet gives further details on the impact your gift can make.

Donors making an annual gift of more than £5,000 are eligible for the Patrons’ Circle, and donations in excess of £20,000 in a given year qualify for the Warden’s Circle.

Please bear in mind Gift Aid when making a donation: if you are a UK taxpayer, the College is able to reclaim basic rate tax (20%) on any donations that you make, at no cost to you, meaning a donation of £1,103 will enter you into the 1379 Circle.

The College is delighted to invite all members of the 1379, Patrons’, and Warden’s Circles to a special Concert and lunch in College each year. Members are also listed on our donor wall located in the Monks’ passage, although you can of course request for your gift to remain anonymous.

For information on how to donate to New College, visit the Support New College page of our website.
