For almost 1,000 years, Oxford University has been recognized and celebrated across the world as a jewel in the crown of world learning. Just as our past inspires us, it also demands that we achieve greater heights in the centuries to come. Inspired philanthropy has always played an important role in this University by providing resources for great scholarship, architectural jewels such the Bodleian Library and the Radcliffe Camera, or the great engineering, medical and scientific laboratories of the 20th century. By giving to Americans for Oxford, you are continuing this tradition of excellence. Thank you.
