Giving to Earth Sciences

For over 100 years, Oxford earth scientists have been observing life and its origins, the environment and its interiors and the planet and its processes. The discoveries made here have informed policy and advanced our knowledge of fundamental science.

Whether out in the field or in Oxford laboratories, it is the department’s mission to continue to provide the best possible environment – an environment in which the world’s brightest minds and practitioners can collaborate and make ground-breaking discoveries that answer today’s most pressing questions.

We actively welcome philanthropic partners to support this mission.


How to give

There are many ways in which you can support Earth Sciences at Oxford, for example by making a one-off gift, giving a regular donation or leaving a gift in your will.

If you would like to discuss giving, you are invited to get in touch with Caitlin Tebbit, the Deputy Head of Development – MPLS.

Tax efficient giving

Your gift can be enhanced by a variety of tax-efficient giving initiatives.

The University of Oxford is an exempt charity for the purpose of charity legislation. This means that, although it has charitable status, it is exempt from the requirement to register as a charity with the Charity Commission so it does not have a charity reference number.

There are several schemes available to help donors based in various countries to make tax efficient donations.
