Charitable Status

All gifts are processed by the University of Oxford Development Trust (OUDT). If your wish is to support a college, OUDT shall transfer your gift directly to the relevant college. In all other cases, your kind gift will be held in the specific OUDT fund whose purposes most closely correspond to the area you wish to support and shall then be applied in accordance with the purposes of the relevant fund. Details of the funds can be found here. Wishes expressed shall not give rise to new trusts or other legally-binding obligations. Every gift will contribute towards the Oxford Thinking Campaign.

The objectives of OUDT are to procure, assist and secure the advancement of education, learning, teaching, scholarship and research at or in connection with the University of Oxford, its colleges and societies. OUDT is administered by the University and established for a special purpose in connection with the University. It is therefore an exempt charity for the purpose of charity legislation. As such, it has full charitable status; albeit it is exempt from the requirement to register as a charity with the Charity Commission, and therefore does not have a Charity reference number. OUDT's HMRC reference number is XN80595.

Your data will continue to be used for the purposes of communication and marketing activities by post, email, telephone, fax or text message, unless you indicate otherwise. We use tools to monitor the effectiveness of our communications with you, including email tracking, which records when an email from us is opened and/or how many links are clicked within the message.

If at any time your details change or you wish to add to or remove from the list of communications sent to you then please contact us.

Your data are held securely in the University’s shared Development and Alumni Relations System (DARS), which helps ensure your details are up-to-date and improves our communications with you. The data may be used by colleges, faculties, departments, administrative units, international offices, recognised alumni societies, sports and other entities associated with the University, and agents contracted by the University in that capacity.

Full details on how your data are held and used are set out in our Data Protection Statement here or you can request a hard copy from our Database Team. Some sensitive personal data may be held in DARS. If at any time you have any queries about the use of your personal data in DARS or wish to change the fact of, or extent of, use of your personal data, please contact the Database Team, quoting your alumni card number (if you have one), at the address given below, or email, or phone (01865) 611600.
