As an Association, SFOU makes it more tax-efficient for Swiss-resident, and possibly other taxpayers, to donate to Oxford University.
You can still make tax-deductible donations or leave tax-exempt legacies even if you are not a member of SFOU.
However, by joining SFOU, you support the Association and ensure its ongoing existence. You also have a chance to attend the AGM and other events.
SFOU membership costs CHF 250 per calendar year. At least 50% of this will be allocated to a special scholarship fund for Swiss residents studying at Oxford University. The rest of the fee will assist with the administration costs of the Association. The membership fee is tax deductible for Swiss tax residents subject to the same qualifications as for donations.
