Help secure the future of CORE

By donating to CORE, you help transform economics education


The last 12 months have been a stunning success for the CORE Econ Team. We have achieved things that many of us thought would be impossible. But we need your help so that CORE Econ can continue to do our ground-breaking work.

CORE Econ shows economics is a way to understand the world’s great challenges and together, we can revolutionise the way economics is taught. The Economist says CORE Econ’s success could mean “a broader array of perspectives within economics departments, bigger and bolder research questions—and fewer profession-shaking traumas in future.” September 2017.

We have the commitment, the tools, and the volunteers, but we cannot do this overnight. Your donation will help to extend CORE Econ’s reach and make the project sustainable.

We are asking you to help us make the best economics free online to anyone on the planet.

We work on a limited budget because our content, review and piloting is contributed free by top researchers and teachers around the world who volunteer their time.

Using this unique resource, in the next 12 months we can produce new ebooks, introduce CORE Econ in many more university courses all over the world, extend the reach of CORE Econ into schools, translate and localize in more languages, and train new teachers. But we need your help to make that possible.

If you’re wondering how we will put your contribution to work, consider the last 12 months in CORE Econ’s journey. In that time, we have:

As well as doing this, we have created a library full of questions, support materials, and teaching aids.

Reclaim Gift Aid

Gift Aid It!Add 25% more to your donation at no cost to you. A Gift Aid declaration allows CORE to claim tax back on eligible donations. It means that for every £1 you donate to CORE we can claim back 25p, at no extra cost to you.

By ticking the "Yes" box, I agree I would like CORE to reclaim the tax on all qualifying donations I have made, as well as any future donations, until I notify them otherwise. I understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year I may be asked to pay any difference. I understand that CORE will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that I give.

What is Gift Aid?

Gift Aid does not cost you a penny more, but can add an additional 25p to every £1 you donate. When CORE receives a donation from a UK taxpayer, we're entitled to claim an amount of tax (calculated at the basic rate of income tax in that year) paid on that donation. Once you have given your permission for us to do this on your behalf, there is no need for you to do anything else.

All that is required is that you must be a taxpayer and that would have paid or will pay sufficient Income and/or Capital Gains Tax to cover all the Gift Aid claimed on all your donations in that tax year. Please note that it is your responsibility to pay any difference.

The amount of tax we claim will be 25% of the total value of your donations in that tax year. Furthermore, if you are a higher taxpayer, you are also entitled to claim the difference between the basic rate which we will claim and the amount of tax you have actually paid. For further details on how you can do this, please contact your tax office. If your tax situation changes and your gifts will no longer be eligible for the Gift Aid scheme please contact us and we will amend your record accordingly.
