Telephone Campaign 2020
Teddy Hall Telephone Campaign
Due to the unprecedented situation with Covid-19 the College has taken the decision to cancel our March 2020 Telephone Campaign. This decision has been taken to prioritise the health and welfare of all members of the Teddy Hall community.
The ongoing support of Aularians is essential to so many aspects of Hall life. In 2019, 1,101 Aularians supported the Hall; over 700 of whom made a regular gift to the Annual Fund. This allowed us to provide financial support to 25% of undergraduates, refurbish accommodation, award grants for books and field trips, foster Hall Spirit and creativity and connect with over 5,300 secondary school students through our outreach work.
If you would like to make a gift now you can do so here: Make a gift online
Aularians in the USA can make a gift tax efficiently here: Donate via Americans for Oxford
We very much look forward to connecting with alumni in future telethons, and if you have any questions, please contact email@example.com.
