The President's Circle

Main Building, Wolfson College Cambridge

The President’s Circle brings together our most exceptional supporters who have partnered with the College in its mission to provide students unrivalled academic support in an inspiring environment – physical, intellectual, social and cultural.

Philanthropy underpins our achievements across the entire College

Students in their graduation procession

We aim to be the College of choice for world-class postgraduates, mature undergraduates and returning learners as they embrace the collegiate Cambridge experience and call Wolfson their home. With an annual gift of £1,000 or more, members of The President's Circle help make this a reality. Individuals who have given more than £10,000 cumulatively over the past 10 years are also invited to join the Circle.

In my two years as President, I have been struck by the loyalty, passion and commitment that our donors have for Wolfson College and the impact their generosity has on both the life of our College and our students. The President’s Circle is the College’s opportunity to recognise donors and importantly, my opportunity to become closer to you, our major donors, and to keep you up to date on a personal level about priorities and plans for the future, progress made and what we might achieve together.

Fellow (2005)

The funding has allowed me to have an incredible time so far where I have been able to engage with my academic interests, join societies and make wonderful friends. The scholarships have been particularly helpful over the summer holidays where I usually spend most of my summer working in hospitality, I am now able to focus on gaps in my knowledge and reading around my academic interests in preparation for the advanced level of second year. I have also been able to spend my summer volunteering and supporting the college's virtual open days.
