Matched funding scheme
Between 2008 and 2011 the Government’s Matched Funding Scheme promised to match donations made to universities to encourage philanthropic support for the Higher Education sector. For every £10 that was donated to Royal Holloway and Bedford New College, Matched Funding added £5 and Gift Aid could add a further 25% -this made a £10 gift worth £18.75!
Your response was incredible! Alumni, Parents and Friends of the College responded in their thousands to the appeal and thanks to their kind support the College has received over £522,842 from the Matched Funding scheme. The scheme has allowed gifts toward the Annual Fund to play an even greater part in giving our students amazing opportunities and access to first class facilities.
61 projects have been supported since 2008 from the refurbishment of Bedford Library to purchasing pitch covers for the Cricket club. To find out more about the areas that have benefitted from your donations please click here.
Donations enhance the work and standing of the College, ensuring deserving students have the chance to study at RHBNC, enhancing our facilities and estates and supporting our innovative research.
