Department of Zoology


Giving to Zoology

We are actively seeking support for all aspects of the Department’s activities. If you would like to support us by making a gift, of whatever size, we would be most grateful.

If you would like to discuss how you might contribute to the Department of Zoology, please contact Dr William Foster, Director of Alumni Relations, who will be very pleased to talk to you confidentially.

On-line Giving

The University’s Office for Development and Alumni Relations (CUDAR) has made it easier to make donations on-line to the Department.

If you wish to make a donation, please go to:

US Tax Payers

If you are a US taxpayer you may prefer to donate via Cambridge in America. Cambridge in America is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organisation (recognised by the US Internal Revenue Service) that funds grants that benefit the University of Cambridge and its member colleges and departments. Gifts to Cambridge in America qualify for an income tax deduction to the limits allowed by law. You can give online or by post within the US via the Cambridge in America gift form. Please state when making your gift that you would like your donation to support the Department of  Zoology.

A gift in your will

One very effective way of contributing to the long-term development of the Department’s programme is through the provision of a legacy in one’s will. This has the beneficial effect that legacies to charities are exempt from tax and so reduce liability for inheritance tax. The University provides advice about how legacies can be written into one’s will. Further information is available here,  including a pdf file entitled A Gift in Your Will.
