welcome to 

WHAT'S A POUND?

making a difference one pound at a time.

 

tell me more...

What’s a Pound? was founded by students at the University of Oxford who wanted to find an intersection between students' enjoyment and social responsibility. 

 

Due to the number of balls and events that happened every year, they realized they needed to harness this huge charity potential.

 

By asking committees to pledge that their event will add £1 to every ticket and donate that money to charity, we are making sure that the only people who are affected are those who need it most! 

we are asking you to pledge to add £1 to your event ticket & donate this to charity.

. 3 universities involved

. 44,390 pounds raised so far

. 50+ total events pledged

. 2.8k followers on social media

. 12 total collaborations

WAP is a simple, yet effective way of raising money for local charities, with the hope of improving the lives of those in our community

Meet the team

Originally the brainchild of Oxford student Lauren Blum, WHAT'S A POUND? has grown into a body of students from across the university working to make charitable giving easier for everyone. Our team in Oxford work with a network of students in cities like Exeter, Edinburgh, and Warwick to get WHAT'S A POUND?'s resources into the hands of as many people as possible. If you'd like to get involved with one of our current projects, or help get us started in your city, get in touch!
