Tax efficient giving to charity

Gift Aid (UK)

Gift Aid is a UK government tax scheme, which enables the University to claim tax relief on donations from UK tax payers.

If you would like to see 25% added on top of your gift, please ‘tick’ the Gift Aid Declaration on the donation form or when making a gift on-line.

For every £1 a UK tax payer donates, 25p in reclaimed tax is added. A £100 gift with Gift Aid, therefore, is worth £125 to the University.

  • In order for gifts to be eligible for Gift Aid, the donor must be a UK taxpayer who will have paid an amount of income tax and/or capital gains tax at least equal to the tax that the University will reclaim on the gifts in the tax year in which they are made.
  • Gifts made with Charities Aid Foundation (CAF) vouchers have already had Gift Aid claimed on them by CAF and passed to the charity, so further Gift Aid cannot be claimed.
