    Support STIMULUS:

    The STIMULUS programme is entirely reliant upon donations for financial support. STIMULUS is very cost-effective — the annual running costs, including all volunteer training, liaison with schools to organise around 250 placements every year, arranging DBS checks for volunteers and monitoring the placements, equate to less than £5 per student volunteer per contact hour in local schools. However, we continue to need to raise further funds to cover the co-ordination costs of the programme.

    If you would like to help, we would be very grateful if you would consider making a donation. We are immensely grateful for all support we receive, and your gift, of whatever size, will make a real difference to us.

    How to give:

    You can make a donation to STIMULUS online via the Cambridge University Development Office's secure site. If you are a UK taxpayer, you will also be given an option of adding Gift Aid to your donation, which increases the value of your gift at no extra cost to you.

    If you would like to discuss supporting STIMULUS in more detail please contact Julia Hawkins.

    Thank you for your support!
