First ever Stortfordian Foundation Giving Day

Our First Ever Giving Day is Coming! 

We are preparing to celebrate Bishop's Stortford College's first ever Giving Day in just under two weeks' time, across November 25th and 26th.  This Giving Day, we will be raising funds to support the Stortfordian Bursary Fund.  We are thoroughly committed to doing more to enable bright and promising young people from Bishop's Stortford and the local area to access a College education, whatever their background and means.   

We would very much like to invite our worldwide Stortfordian Community to join us in support of our vision.  Watch our special Giving Day video, where the Head of Bishop's Stortford College, Kathy Crewe-Read, and the Head of the Prep School Bill Toleman, introduce Giving Day and explain more about our ambition - including making a very exciting announcement.

What is Giving Day?

A Giving Day is a fun, time-limited community fundraising appeal.  No matter the size of the gift, thanks to the support of the College, all donations will go at least twice as far during our first Giving Day.  We are absolutely delighted to confirm that the first £100,000 raised will be matched pound for pound by the College, to demonstrate our serious commitment to the new bursary vision!   

In addition, a generous alumni donor has provided a further £2,500 gift to be unlocked through three unique Giving Day challenges!  So, for this special 36-hour period between 9am on November 25th and 9pm on November 26th, the impact of your donation will be doubled by the College - and in some cases - then tripled by our alumni donor!

During Giving Day, we will be in touch via email with inspiring stories, more films and updates on progress. This means that you will receive more emails from us than we would normally send.  We hope that you will enjoy keeping up to date, but if you would prefer not to receive emails about Giving Day, you can unsubscribe using the link at the bottom your emails.

Thank You for Your Support!

Looking back over the past year, pulling together as a community to celebrate our values and to help others has become more important than ever.  We are inviting you to join us and spread the word with your community about our campaign, however you feel able.
