Strong response to Uni of Oxford Maths building appeal

The University of Oxford’s appeal to the Actuarial Profession for support of the new Mathematical Institute building continues to gain momentum. We have been delighted with the positive response that our flyer in The Actuary received and we appreciate the support of alumni and non-alumni alike who have contributed towards the effort. We are also very grateful to those actuarial employers who have already contributed to the project, whether through employer matching schemes or through a corporate donation. Support to date is as shown below and we are hoping to see the list grow.

>> Employers offering a matching scheme
Barnett Waddingham, Prudential, Hymans Robertson and Friends Provident

>> Employer making a corporate donation
Towers Watson.

All gifts received are being counted towards a joint naming opportunity for the Actuarial Profession within the new building, which will provide an enhanced student environment and extend the provision for teaching in actuarial science. It is hoped that this naming for the undergraduate common room will recognise the close relationship between the actuarial profession and Oxford as course offerings for actuarial science continue to increase in popularity and the programme continues to grow and flourish.

Alumni are offered the opportunity to become a multi-billionaire and name a seat in the lecture theatre by donating £10bn in binary notation (or £1,024 to you and me).
