Non Ecclesiastical Charities of St Mary Magdalen



The Charity consists of two funds which are used to:

·       give relief either generally or individually to people in conditions of need, hardship or distress;

·       give assistance for people aged under 25 undertaking educational training (for example by making grants for books, equipment, course fees or travelling expenses). The Trustees do not fund second degrees.  


Originally the beneficiaries of the charity had to be resident in the Parish of St. Mary Magdalen and preference is still given to such residents but the area of benefit has now been extended to cover the City of Oxford.  Applicants should have at least 3 years residence and be permanently resident in the area of benefit.  This excludes temporary residents.


The Charity (Dr Knight) can be contacted via the Oxford City Council representative.
