The Sir Nicholas Shackleton Fellowship Fund

An appeal

Nick Shackleton wanted to ensure that research in palaeoclimate changes should be continued both at Clare Hall and in the Cambridge Quaternary community.

The contributions towards this fund will enable a Visiting Fellow at Clare Hall to carry out research in palaeoclimate changes for a period of up to one year.

Many of you have been asking about how to make a donation towards the Sir Nicholas Shackleton Fellowship Fund to be held at Nick's college Clare Hall. Here is information about how to make a contribution.

  • Note to Canadian donors:

Donations to Clare Hall from Canadian residents are deductible from taxable income, as described in paragraph 110(1)(a) of the Canadian Income Tax Act. Donors can send any gifts direct to the College; we will then arrange to issue an official receipt that will satisfy the requirements of the Canadian authorities.

If you would like to make a contribution may do so through Cambridge in America.

If you are giving through Cambridge in America, you will need to indicate your wish to give a donation towards the Sir Nicholas Shackleton Fellowship Fund set up by Clare Hall.
