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 costs a great deal of money; we are currently spending approximately £1.4 million on eight projects. They range in cost from £40,000 up to £240,000. To help raise funds, we run several activities which are usually well supported by guests and visitors who are keen to support us.  Meanwhile, the majority of our income is thanks to the generosity of the many Grant Making Trusts which we approach.  After detailed research, we are able to apply for funding within given parameters, so long as our appeals conform to the terms stipulated by each Trust.

We also receive monthly contributions to INSPIRE, as well as generous one-off gifts from friends and supporters, all of which is hugely appreciated and very welcome.

Why do we need more?  The more money we have, the more research we can fund and the better the quality of our projects, the more money we can raise!  It really is a chicken and egg situation.  In addition, unlike other much bigger medical research charities, we do not qualify for Government or NHS funding so 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 the research we undertake is dependent on donations like yours.  Thank you.
