The Bicknell Association has no other source of funding, so we would be delighted if you would like to make a donation towards our overheads like the website, Ancestry subscriptions and other research. In order to gain the greatest benefit from everyone’s efforts, the association requires funds in order to function and provide the genealogy tools and YDNA analysis for all to use.
We have suggested below some levels of giving, like “Essential” subscription at $5 per month, or “Foundation” at $15 per month, but there is an option to give any amount you’d like. We were delighted to receive in mid-2021 a donation of $20,000 and that will see us on our way to some productive work. Stay tuned.
If you are in a position to be able to contribute, please use one of the options below, to make a donation. Your gift can be anonymous, however, we would like to acknowledge all our supporters and hope you will provide your name and approximate location (e.g. London, UK). The Benefactors page lists our supporters as ‘Fellows of the Bicknell Association‘. The amount of donation will be withheld at your request.
If you donated before the end of September 2021 you will be listed as a Founder Fellow of the Bicknell Association, with our gratitude.
In addition, by way of thanks for your gift, we can offer you an email address in the form email@example.com – Cool eh! No one could doubt you’re a proud member of the Bicknell family, worldwide, on the net, it’s right there in all your emails.

The Association will be run on a ‘Not for Profit’ basis according to our Mission Statement and Statutes and our accounts will be published annually here.
As at Feb 9, 2021, the accountant and the treasurer have not been apointed. Do you have the skills and would you like to volunteer? It’s is not going to be very time-consuming, something like an hour a month and an hour or two doing the year-end report. Thanks! firstname.lastname@example.org
