Can you support us?

We hope that you find our online resources useful and informative! abcd exists without any external core funding. Most of our revenue comes from our members' subscriptions, project funding from Trusts and Foundations, and small surpluses made on our courses and events. As we emerge from the pandemic, in order to continue to grow, we need your help. Any donation, large or small, makes a difference. If you are able to help us by making a donation here, we would be very grateful for your support.
