The Hamilton Mathematics Institute depends upon donations as well as research grants, to support world class research undertaken by participants in its programmes. The needs are diverse:
- for Visiting Professors and Scholars
- for specific workshops
- to support early career researchers
- to enhance gender balance and diversity in participation
- towards travel, subsistence and accommodation for participants
- and above all, so that the Scientific Steering Committee has the freedom to select the best programme across all of mathematics and theoretical physics.
Fundraising activities are supported by a Development Board comprising leading figures in academia, TCD alumni and industry and commerce.
Trinity College Dublin plans to develop the HMI as a national resource for excellence in mathematics research for Ireland and we are seeking philanthropic support to underpin this expansion to drive discovery and challenge scientific boundaries.
If you are interested in finding out more about the HMI or if you would like information on how to get involved as a supporter, please do not hesitate to contact Samson Shatashvili, Director and University Chair of Natural Philosophy (1847) - (+353 (0)1 8961945) / email@example.com or Sinéad Pentony in Trinity Development and Alumni - (+353 (0)1 8964564) / firstname.lastname@example.org
Trinity College Dublin has charitable status and so donations made to it or its constituent parts, including the HMI, may attract tax relief. Donations are eligible for full tax relief in Ireland, the UK (Gift Aid) and the US via the US Trust, which has 501(c)3 tax-exempt status that serves to enable tax-efficient donations from the US to be made to Trinity projects.
Our supporters are acknowledged formally in Trinity College Dublin’s Annual Donor Report (unless anonymity is preferred) and in all materials and events associated with the HMI. Supporters will be invited to special events in the HMI and have the opportunity to engage with academic staff in the School of Mathematics, Visiting Professors and Scholars. The HMI also offers recognition in various ways, including naming opportunities.
We are very grateful to the following organisations for their specific support: Science Foundation Ireland (SFI), National Science Foundation (USA), Boston College and the Simons Foundation.
