How you can help
Although Oxford University provides invaluable intellectual and institutional support, it cannot fund our appeals. For help in delivering WildCRU's 2020 Vision we turn to our extended family of colleagues, collaborators, students and supporters. We will be delighted to hear from anyone who wants to help, whether as collaborators, potential graduate students or benefactors.
To complete WildCRU's consolidation, and ensure that we can deliver our 2020 Vision for the future, we have mounted four appeals:
- Engine Room appeal: to support our core staff.
- Emergency appeal: to support front-line research at short notice.
- IT appeal: to support an IT manager and up-to-date computers.
- Vehicle appeal: to support the purchase and up-keep of our vehicles.
Donations made from the UK
CHEQUES & CREDIT CARDS
Our Donation and Gift Aid Form is available here. Otherwise please contact our UK office (see address below). Donors should make their cheque payable to University of Oxford Development Trust Fund and send it with the completed donation form to our address (below). Credit card payments may be made using the same form.
UK taxpayers are requested to use the Gift Aid Scheme, which increases the value of your gift to WildCRU. Any sum can therefore be given tax efficiently by UK taxpayers under the Gift Aid scheme. Higher rate taxpayers can also claim a higher rate tax relief, reducing the cost of their gift significantly.
Making your gift online is an efficient way to support WildCRU. This is via www.giving.ox.ac.uk/wildcru. If you are a UK taxpayer, the online giving site provides an option to add Gift Aid.

The objectives of the University of Oxford Development Trust Fund are to promote, assist and secure the advancement of education, learning, teaching, scholarship and research at or in connection with the University of Oxford, its Colleges and societies, including WildCRU. The Fund is administered by the University and established for a special purpose in connection with the University. It is therefore an exempt charity for the purpose of charity legislation. As such, it has full charitable status; albeit it is exempt from the requirement to register as a charity with the Charities Commission, and therefore does not have a Charity reference number. The Fund's Inland Revenue reference number is XN80595.
Americans for Oxford, Inc. has been determined by the U.S. Internal Revenue Service to qualify under Sections 501(c)(3) and 509(a) of the Internal Revenue Code as a tax-exempt public charity. This organization can receive contributions and make grants available to the University of Oxford and to the departments and colleges within the University.
