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.
In addition to our ongoing appeal for support to our core staff and emergency project fund, our current priority is to raise urgent funds for WildCRU’s long term study on badgers in Wytham Woods, approaching it’s 30th year. Please contact our office if you have any queries.
If you are looking for giving methods to WildCRU and how to give tax efficiently from your country, please see the University of Oxford’s pages on tax-efficient giving. If you would like to consider WildCRU in your will please see the University of Oxford’s pages on legacies and bequests.

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.
