As we move into the final phase of our capital campaign with the Spencer Building, it has been wonderful to see the Corpus community coming together in a shared commitment to safeguarding our intellectual heritage and improving the study environment for our students. In this year’s Telethon, we will be continuing to seek the involvement of our supporters in this landmark project, alongside other strategic priorities including graduate scholarships, our access and outreach programme, and student support initiatives. This year, a group of nine students will be making calls to Old Members. Please do take the call. Mark your calendars and join us as we pen the next chapter in the history of Corpus Christi College.
Spotlight on our student callers
Our annual Telethon Campaign will be taking place from 22 September to 1 October. The Telethon plays an important role in the life of the College. Its success over the years is testament to the generosity of both our alumni and students who take part, and our collective commitment to supporting present and future generations of Corpus students. Here are some of the callers.
Our fundraising priorities
As well as being a great way of catching up with our Old Members, the telethon is an important fundraising event. The College relies upon philanthropy in order to continue providing the world-class education and supportive learning environment of which we are so proud. Our students will be asking, on behalf of Corpus Christi, for regular donations to support the College's highest priorities.
Although our sixteenth-century Library is of national architectural and historical significance, enhancements to its spaces are needed to meet the expectations of students and staff at a modern, world-class university. The Spencer Building will be the permanent, secure and accessible home for the library, archives and collections, and will transform Corpus’ research, teaching, and scholarship. The Spencer Building is the most ambitious capital project to take place on the College site for three centuries.

Your participation matters to us
Even if making a gift to Corpus is not in your plans, we do hope you will still take the call to offer some encouragement and career advice to our students. To help them, and you, get the most out of your conversations, calls will be monitored carefully. Our students are really looking forward to speaking to you. We hope you enjoy your call.
