Options for Donating to the INSPIRE Foundation

Can you help?  Research into SCI is a very expensive business and we need all the help we can get.

Where does the money go? There is no way of disguising that our research programme is expensive; we are currently spending in excess of £1.1 million on seven projects. They range in cost from £40,000 up to £240,000. We run several activities to raise awareness and are usually well supported by guests and visitors who are keen to do their bit. However, the majority of income comes from our approaches to Grant Making Trusts. We are able to apply for funding within given parameters so long as our needs conform to the terms stipulated by each Trust.

Why do we need more? In short, the more money we have, the more research we can undertake – conversely the better the quality of our projects, the more money we can raise! It really is a chicken and egg situation and as there is no Government funding available, our programme is totally dependent on our own fundraising initiatives. If you are in a position to donate personally or you represent an organisation or Trust, please bear in mind that your donation is extremely important to our research programme.
