The Institute of Mathematics and its Applications is celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2014. This is a first call for interested parties to become involved in the support and sponsorship of events to publicise mathematics and the hugely important role that it plays in the modern world, together with the 50 years of support to mathematics and mathematicians given by the IMA.
This ambitious programme of events needs financial support to make it happen. We are also seeking to use the 50th anniversary to create a legacy of resources that can be used to support the growth of the IMA for the next fifty years, with a special emphasis on supporting the work of younger mathematicians. We are starting an ambitious fund-raising and sponsorship programme with industry and business to achieve this. However, we also hope that all IMA members will feel inspired to be part of the fund-raising drive. By doing so each member can feel that they are contributing not only to the 50th anniversary celebrations, but also to the work of the IMA for the next 50 years. If you wish to donate some money (no matter how small) we have created a ‘JustGiving’ website. You can also text IMAA14 £10 to 70070 or send your donation directly to the IMA.
Please feel inspired to pledge some money for the future of the IMA.
