Our alumni and friends who are based in the USA are encouraged to make a gift to the British Schools and Universities Foundation (BSUF), stating a preference for the University of Southampton.If you are an alumnus in the United States you can join our donor community and make a difference to students here on campus through the American Fund for the University of Southampton.
The BSUF is a charitable organisation recognised by the US Internal Revenue Service under Section 501 (c)(3) of their Codes. The BSUF’s Federal ID Number is 13-616-1189. Since its creation the BSUF has served as a catalyst for tax efficient funding by United States taxpayers of educational, literary and scientific institutions in the UK.
U.S taxpayers may claim an income tax deduction for a gift to a 501(c)(3) charitable foundation, such as BSUF, but direct gifts to a foreign charitable organisation do not qualify. Therefore we will acknowledge every gift as a ‘grant from the British Schools and Universities Foundation, made possible by a generous donation from [the original donor’s name]’
Gifts to the BSUF can be made via check and online credit card donation. For further information on making a gift to the BSUF, stating a preference for the University of Southampton please click here.
