Donate / Sport, Sport Clubs, and Societies / Sport Clubs Vincent's Club Vincent's Club was founded in 1863 to provide an exclusive forum where sporting students could gather and “enjoy fine fellowship”. Now in its 150th year, the subscriptions of students in residence alone cannot meet the costs of maintaining the Club in its own premises. To mark the 150th Anniversary a major project, known as V150, has been launched to meet these challenges as well as to create a broader mission for our Club. Its aims are: To preserve the ethos of the Club and strengthen the principle that it is a “club for members for life”. To ensure that the Club is professionally managed. To provide premises which are fit for purpose and will permit out of term use to generate an additional secure source of revenue. To help the Club develop a more influential voice in University sports’ governance, with the aim of fostering a greater sporting ethos at Oxford. To create the Vincent's Awards, and to expand the Outreach Programme which is already underway, to encourage young scholar athletes - men and women - to apply to Oxford and to help them pursue their sporting and University ambitions. To achieve our mission, our fundraising targets are: Property - To raise £500k for the redevelopment of 1A King Edward Street. Redevelopment is essential to raise the club premises to a standard appropriate for use by resident members, alumni, guests, and others (out of term). This increased figure now includes the installation of a lift. It will permit the Club to generate vital extra income in the vacations. We also wish to build a property endowment fund of £500k to help acquire a new lease, new leasehold premises, or purchase a premises of our own when the current lease expires. Vincent's Sport's Development Fund - To create a minimum endowment fund of £2 million for Vincent’s Awards, including Outreach. General support - To help cover the Club’s annual running costs we are asking ALL members to make an annual gift aided direct debit donation of between £60 and £180. Larger amounts would , of course, be very welcome and the chosen sum may be given in monthly instalments. To find out more please download the Vincent's 150 brochure. As we celebrate the 150th anniversary of Vincent’s let us together resolve once and for all the challenges the Club faces and launch it for another 150 years with a solid financial base and a new mission.
