The St Peter's College Foundation

St Peter's College Foundation

The SPC Foundation

The St Peter’s College Foundation is a separate charitable body to that of the College, working independently of the College’s office of Development and Alumni relations – though with its close participation. It was set up in 2005 by a group of alumni with its primary focus being to invest in people as opposed to buildings and infrastructure.

The Foundation aims to support initiatives to attract the broadest range of potential students to the College, provide financial support to students in residence at the College and invest in maintaining and expanding the College’s teaching resources.

The Foundation established and now regularly supports reading groups for finalists and bridging courses for first year undergraduates. It funds studentships and seminars for the support of graduate research, as well as travel and research grants for teaching Fellows.

Two graduate studentships have been established – one in collaboration with the Royal University of Phnom Penh in Cambodia and another for a Singaporean national chosen jointly by the donor and the College.

There are eight Trustees of whom 3 are senior members of the Governing Body and 5 are graduates of the College. The Trustees manage the assets and take all investment decisions.

The Foundation is registered as an independent UK charity no 1107938.
