Make a donation

Thank you very much for considering making a donation, this is one of the best ways to support us and our research is by contributing to our funding. There are a number of ways in which you can do this.


Online Donation Page

The easiest way to make a donation is via our dedicated donation page administered by the University of Cambridge. This method has a number of benefits over others:

  • Make a one-off donation or set up recurring gifts by direct debit (monthly or annually)
  • Gift Aid – UK taxpayers can increase the value of their donation at no additional cost to them

Note: as the donations page is hosted and administered by the university, it looks a bit different than our own website, and the website address begins with

Just Giving

We have a dedicated JustGiving campaign page as part of the University of Cambridge charity. You can either give directly or start your own fundraising campaign to support us. As with our donation page, we are able to claim Gift Aid on donations if appropriate (see above).


To donate from your phone simply text DOG5 or DOG10 to 70033, to donate £5 or £10 respectively*

*UK mobile only. Texts cost your donation plus your standard network rate. 100% of your donation will go towards canine genetics research at the University of Cambridge. You must be 16+ and have the bill payer’s permission. Full T&Cs at
