The College’s Endowment is invested with the Oxford University Endowment Management Fund (OUEM) and we use the investment return to help run College. OUEM invests both for the University and for many of the colleges with a focus on long-term investments. 

Linacre is one of the least well-endowed colleges in Oxford, so a gift to the Endowment Fund will help with running College in perpetuity. Endowment income is what allows the College to grow and thrive. When student fee or residential income falls short of the basic costs of operating the College this is what helps us break even. It also allows us to undertake improvement projects like the newly refurbished study spaces.
