Goodenough Giving Day 2021

Thank you to everyone who took part in our second Goodenough Giving Day which took place over 17-18 November. We  were amazed by the community spirit you demonstrated in support of our current and future Members.

Because of you, we have so far raised over over £135,000, including Gift Aid. We received 367 donations from 301 individual donors (several gave more than once). Find out more about the results of the Day and the impact your gifts will have on the College and our Members.

Create a tribute page on MuchLoved – a special service for Alumni

Wherever we are in the world, 2020-21 has undoubtedly been an incredibly difficult period. Now many of us will be taking time for reflection. Something that is sure to come to mind are thoughts of our own and our loved ones’ futures and how we might like to remember, or indeed be remembered, after we have passed on.

We have arranged a special service with MuchLoved, to allow you to set up and share tribute pages for loved ones who have passed on. We know our Alumni community is incredibly international which can make it difficult in the best of times, but especially now, to pay your respects when a friend passes away. Now, by creating a tribute page, you can take part in remembrance, offering your own personal condolences and fond memories.

The tributes you make can take the form of personal stories, photos, pieces of music, or even a fundraiser to make a memorial contribution in honour of your loved one. Many of you will have met your life-long friends, and possibly even a partner, at Goodenough and it may be fitting, when somebody close to you dies, to celebrate those connections through making a gift to ensure that the next generation of Goodenough Members will have the same opportunities that you did. To create a tribute go to MuchLoved, set up your tribute and connect it to the College’s MuchLoved profile when prompted.

In the coming months, we will be talking more about the importance of making a Will. Many people are unaware of the significant impact that leaving a Legacy makes, so we will also be developing some new materials to help show the impact leaving a gift in your Will can have and how you can do so with ease and confidence.
