Norham St Edmund student accommodation and communal facilities

We will only be able to reach our goal of £15m with the support of our alumni and friends. Gifts as small as £50 can make a real difference in this once-in-a-generation development, helping to make the Hall more accessible and environmentally sustainable.

For larger gifts see our Naming Opportunities below and contact the Development Office.

A gift of £50, 000, for example, will name the Ecology Pond, whether a single gift or as five annual donations of £10,000. 

UK taxpayers can further reduce their gifts through tax-efficient donations. St Edmund Hall can claim Gift Aid and the donor can reclaim it against their tax liability. For example, if the Higher Rate of income tax (40%) is being paid and a donor makes a gift of £40,000, the Hall can claim £10,000 in Gift Aid, making the value of this gift £50,000.
