Plus is one of the projects run by the Millennium Mathematics Project at the University of Cambridge. The MMP's activities are made possible by funding received from a number of organisations and individuals committed to the future of mathematics education and to improving the public perception of mathematics.

We are delighted to be working on grant-funded collaborations with the Isaac Newton Institute, funded by EPSRC, and the Juniper Consortium, funded by UKRI.

We are also very grateful for current and recent support for Plus from the Faculty of Mathematics, University of Cambridge; the Kavli Foundation (via a grant-funded collaboration with the Stephen Hawking Centre for Theoretical Cosmology), and FQXi, as well as individual donations from generous readers.

We are also very grateful for previous support from Cambridge University Press and Cambridge Assessment (formerly the University of Cambridge Local Examinations Syndicate), and by past grants from the UK Department for Education and Skills, the UK Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC), the Faculty and Institute of Actuaries, the Isaac Newton Trust, the John Templeton Foundation, the London Mathematical Society, the Nuffield Foundation, PSI, the Royal Astronomical Society, the Royal Academy of Engineering, the Royal Commission of 1851, the Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC), and the Wellcome Trust.

We would like to thank all of our funders and donors, past and present, for their generosity and support.
