支持上大学

今天就做一件礼物 here或者是一份常规的礼物 here.

皇冠官方APP下载 has a long tradition of philanthropic support dating back to its founding in 1714, 现在需要老议员和朋友们的支持, 在这个充满挑战的时刻, 比以往任何时候都更. 

新冠肺炎疫情严重影响了牛津和剑桥各学院的财务状况, but the extent to which they have suffered varies depending on several factors including: the specific value of annual lost conference income, the overall size of their endowment and the amount of discretionary/unrestricted funds that have been available to each college as we navigate an unprecedented situation with unique challenges.  

在伍斯特, 仅在20/21年度,会议收入的财政损失就超过200万英镑, which was compounded by the additional loss of student rents at different points in the year as students had to return home during various lockdowns.  This is a significant proportion of our unrestricted income and loss of conference income has continued ever since that time, as changing government restrictions on indoor events and weddings has made it impossible for people to make plans.

多亏了最近的三百周年纪念运动的成功, College had just increased the size of its endowment from a perilously low position of £15m (the second lowest in the University) to £51m.  虽然这是一个巨大的成就, the increased size of College’s endowment must be considered in the context of comparison to other colleges who are delivering the same goals as us and delivering a world-class education with Tutorial System of Teaching.  例如,牛津最富有的大学圣约翰学院(St John’s college)获得了6亿英镑的捐赠.  简而言之,即使是捐赠金额排名第十的学院,其捐赠金额也接近2亿英镑, 皇冠APP下注的捐赠状况得到了很大改善,但这并没有让皇冠APP下注在经济上得到保障. 

Were it not for the incredible support of 914 Old Members and other friends of the College who donated last year, it is clear that despite significant savings made through efficiencies and the hard work of the whole College community, 可能有必要强制裁减工作人员.  皇冠APP下注从来没有像现在这样感谢你们的支持.     

In addition, 皇冠APP下注敏锐地意识到大流行对皇冠APP下注现有学生及其家庭的影响.   很难想象这对学生经历的各个方面造成了多大的破坏, and the levels of uncertainty and anxiety that students are experiencing as a result as they try to cope and adapt to a frequently changing situation –  one which has meant that their time at Worcester has been without so much that we take for granted as part of College life, 以及他们的大学时间是有限的.   

As a result, the financial challenges presented by the pandemic are coinciding at a time when College needs to provide more support than usual, 无论这是否在皇冠APP下注的福利提供中:心理健康和幸福支持, 学习设备学习设备,如笔记本电脑或软件, 或私人辅导,以弥补失去的课程和学习时间.

Every gift to College can and does make a difference to College and your gift can be directed to an area of your choosing.  Traditionally Worcester has received incredibly generous gifts from Old Members which makes up (on average) 25% of our income.  However, 常规的小礼物也同样重要, and from a large group of people can add up to a significant amount and help us to build a culture of giving.  目前,只有6%的老会员会定期捐款给学院.  This is well below the Oxbridge average of 12% and the most successful colleges are achieving participation levels of 25%, 而美国常青藤盟校的成绩远远超过了这一水平.  

作为这所伟大学院的监护人,皇冠APP下注有责任确保它的未来.  您的支持可以帮助皇冠APP下注做到这一点.  今天做礼物很简单——点击 here 现在捐赠. 

衷心感谢您的支持.

新冠肺炎学生支援基金

We launched our Covid-19 Emergency Fund for Student Support at our 2020 Giving Day to enable us to respond quickly and effectively to the unique challenges that the pandemic was presenting for our students and you responded with incredible generosity: 186 of you gave to the Fund over the course of the Giving Day raising vital funds at a challenging time.

筹集的资金使学院能够帮助75名学生,直接资助总额超过45英镑,000 this year. 这是用来支付房租和伙食费的,以帮助被封锁的学生, 当他们没有预算的时候,他们不得不留在学校. 平均的礼物是700英镑. 这对这些学生来说至关重要, whose life had become incredibly stressful already without financial hardship adding extra burden. The fund also helped international students having to quarantine when traveling to College because they were coming from a red list College with more than £2,资助有需要的学生. 

Covid无限制的基金

新冠肺炎疫情严重影响了牛津和剑桥各学院的财务状况, but the extent to which they have suffered varies depending on several factors including: the specific value of lost annual conference income, the overall size of their endowment and the amount of discretionary/unrestricted funds that have been available to each college as we navigate an unprecedented situation with unique challenges.  

在大流行到来的时候, Worcester was starting to build up its endowment from a perilously low position (the second lowest in the University) through the success of the recent Tercentenary Campaign and thanks to the support of many Old Members and friends, but College had not yet had the opportunity to consolidate its position and was catching up on a backlog of essential maintenance work that we must do to ensure our historic buildings and grounds are safe.

The financial loss of conference income was compounded by the additional loss of student rents at different points in the year as students had to return home during various lockdowns.  这在伍斯特不受限制的收入中占了很大比例. 会议收入的损失从那时起就一直在持续, 由于不断变化的政府限制使得人们不可能制定计划.

现在,不受限制的礼物比以往任何时候都更能产生真正的影响. 给伍斯特的每一份礼物都可以而且确实会对大学产生影响. Small regular gifts are just as important and from a large group of people can add up to a significant amount and help us to build a culture of giving.
