To recognise generous donors, and encourage sustained support, we have created the 1264 Society, named after the year Merton was founded.
Anyone who makes a gift of £1,264 or above to Merton will be welcomed as a Society member for one year. Those who are under 30 years of age, or who left Merton in the last five years, can join by giving £126.40 or more. Students and those who left Merton in the last year can also become members by donating at least £12.64.
We are very grateful to all of our 1264 Society members. To express our thanks, we provide them with recognition in our Donor Report and invite them to a special event each year. Those who join for the first time also receive a unique and attractive Merton pin badge, as a token of our appreciation.
Since it was founded in 2010, more than 700 alumni and friends have become members of the 1264 Society. We very much hope you will consider joining them. Society members’ gifts add up to make a major difference to the life of the College and impact everything we do. For example, just three donors giving £1,264 per year would fund a full Merton-Oxford Bursary for a student in need.
