Donate to Blackfriars Hall, Oxford

Blackfriars is a centre of educational excellence within an international university city. Blackfriars engages students with questions both contemporary and eternal, drawing on the rich traditions of Catholic thought.

As a smaller, unendowed institution, our success lies in the dedication of our teaching staff and the enthusiasm of our students.

We need your support to take forward our important mission in an increasingly competitive landscape. Please help us to continue to develop our unique contribution to education and academic life!

You can donate to support any of the following

  • Blackfriars Hall – a Permanent Private Hall (PPH) of Oxford University
  • The Las Casas Institute at Blackfriars (teaching and research on human dignity and Catholic social teaching)
  • The Aquinas Institute at Blackfriars (philosophy and theology in the tradition of Thomas Aquinas)
  • Student Support – students in need can apply for support from this fund

Use the form below for online donations: you will be prompted to choose which fund to give to.

If you have any difficulty using the form, or prefer to donate in another way, please contact us.

ABOUT OUR ORGANISATION

Blackfriars Hall and Blackfriars Studium are managed by the Dominican Friars and as such come under their charity, ‘The English Province of the Order of Preachers’, reg’d in England and Wales no. 231192 and in Scotland SC039062. 

 

Personal data for our supporters and other contacts are centrally held in a single secure database, so any interactions you have with the other parts of our charity in addition to those you have with Blackfriars will be held on a single contact record. The charity’s privacy notice can be found here: http://english.op.org/privacy

 

If you are an alumnus/a of or donor to Oxford University, the University will also hold your personal data and you should read their privacy notices https://www1.admin.ox.ac.uk/councilsec/compliance/gdpr/privacynotices/.

 

SECURE AND COMPLIANT

Your personal data are used by us for the purpose of sustaining your relationship with Blackfriars, and to support our fundraising. We comply with current UK regulations on personal data, communications, and privacy. We only share personal data outside our organisation for specific and limited purposes, subject to strict safeguards (e.g. with the collegiate Oxford University for coordinating alumni events; with printers, email service providers, statutory bodies). We use some secure third-party data processors whose servers store data outside the EU but fully comply with UK/EU regulations. 

 

Academic and/or pastoral records are kept entirely separately and not accessed by our Alumni and Development Office.

 

HOW LONG WE KEEP DATA

Blackfriars considers its relationship with alumni, donors and supporters to be life-long and we will retain much of your data indefinitely unless you request otherwise. 

 

YOUR RIGHTS

You can ask to view, correct or erase your data at any time, and are free to withdraw any consents you give. You can complain to the UK Fundraising Regulator if we fail to respect your rights. Please note that in some cases we may be unable to erase your data if retention is required to meet our legal obligations. 

 

COMMUNICATIONS

Email: We will only email you if you opt in to one of our mailing lists (e.g. alumni news) – we cannot keep you informed about events and opportunities unless you do so.

Appeals. We may wish to send you occasional direct fundraising communications by post; you are free to get these by email instead, or opt out altogether by selecting one of the options in the section 'Special Appeals Preferences', below.

RESEARCH FOR MAJOR GIFT FUNDRAISING

We research our contacts in order to discover those who may have the ability to offer larger gifts. Mostly we undertake research using public-domain sources – typically internet searches. Sometimes we may use a secure third-party research service to help us develop our understanding of those we suspect of falling into this group. This research gives a fuller picture of such people: their interests, financial capacity, social networks, philanthropy, involvement in charities. This information is used to enhance our data records and makes it more likely that our fundraising approaches will be welcomed and appropriate.
