The 1881 Club Dinner
The 1881 Club has been set up by the College to recognise and honour those who remember the College in their will.
Through the Club we can thank and acknowledge – privately or publicly – Ormondians in their lifetime for their generous thoughts towards the College. Often the College is not able to thank a donor in his or her lifetime and The 1881 Club enables us to express our gratitude. It also enables us to inform bequestors about just how valuable their gift will be to the College.
We hope that it will also encourage others to consider including Ormond in their will.
The 1881 Club – symbolised by the Ormond clock tower – acknowledges the significant role such gifts have played and will continue to play in the life of the College. The clock tower holds a special place in the history and traditions of the College and is indeed the outstanding landmark on the university campus. It reminds us of the legacy of Francis Ormond and those who have followed him in building and maintaining the College as a leader in academic and residential college education.
From its beginnings in 1881, philanthropic gifts have enabled the College to move forward and adapt to changing needs by providing students with new facilities, scholarships and fellowships.
Members will be listed in the College’s Bequest Register and other publications, receive a membership pin and be invited to 1881 Club functions. Membership can be anonymous if preferred.
