For the greater good
Help build our foundation by giving today.


While the Foundation is still taking shape, the fundraising effort will be relatively passive, extending only to spontaneous individual or business donations, and from groups whose visits are hosted by the James Hutton Institute.

Until the Foundation receives confirmation of its application for Charitable status, payments are being routed via the James Hutton Institute and remitted from there to the Foundation. Once its registration as a Charity is complete, the Foundation will be able to benefit from Gift Aid on donations from UK taxpayers and the donation interface will be updated to allow for this. In the interim, you can contribute to the early work of the Foundation via PayPal using the button on this page.

Thank you for your understanding during this interim period. Your donation is much appreciated.
