by Tim Arnold on 8 May 2019
Your vote counts! | Ten days to nominate Lucy for a £1,000 gift
Ecclesiastical - a specialist financial services company - is giving 500 charities a £1,000 award each to help them fulfill their mission. We have just ten days to ensure that Lucy Cavendish College is one of them! The closing date and time for submitting the Nominations Form is 23:59 on Friday 17th May 2019.
£1,000 may not seem like a lot, but a donation of this size can help us to support students in a range of ways, for example by:
- providing resources for learning and discovery in this unique community;
- relieving the financial burden of higher education for students (many of our bursaries are between £500-£1,000 and help offset student costs);
- responding to emerging needs and opportunities; or
- funding support for extracurricular college activities.
