Supporting Balliol Students

Thousands of alumni make contributions to Balliol each year. Your support allows us to provide extraordinary opportunities for learning and discovery, to extend our financial aid programme to every student who needs it, and to meet emerging needs and challenges. You can choose to make an unrestricted gift or instead direct your donation towards financial support, tutorial teaching or buildings and facilities.

Please make your donation – however modest or magnificent – and you will be helping to keep a Balliol education within reach of a new generation of students. Read more about the difference your regular support makes to current students. 

Holywell Manor Fund

Balliol’s Graduate Centre at Holywell Manor is widely regarded as Oxford’s premier graduate institution. The Manor exists not merely to house our graduate members, but to enrich their intellectual, cultural, and social experience at Oxford – and to foster their well-being by giving them a supportive, friendly and comfortable collegiate home.

The College’s strong intellectual tradition and commitment to social responsibility, the uniquely beautiful setting of Holywell Manor – with its delightful garden and range of dedicated facilities – and the unrivalled energy and initiative of our MCR have enhanced the Oxford experience of our graduates and second BAs for many years. Generations of Manorites have enjoyed – and themselves created – the intellectual buzz of the Praefectus’s Seminars, spirited evenings of discussion in the Megaron Bar, tranquil afternoons in the garden, the Burns Night supper, the annual Garden Party and, above all, daily contact with fellow graduates from many academic disciplines, cultures, and traditions. All this has sustained a diverse, energetic, and intellectually brilliant graduate community.

The Holywell Manor Fund helps preserve and develop this special place for future generations, you can read more here. Your gift to the Holywell Manor Fund will support the students, student activities and facilities at the Manor. Donations fund special projects of direct benefit to graduates, and are used to maintain the treasured and unique experience that being at the Manor has given generations of Balliol graduates and undergraduates reading for second BAs. Make a gift to the Holywell Manor Fund.
