Gift Aid

Under the Gift Aid scheme, the University is able to claim the basic rate of tax on donations received from UK taxpayers.

Gift aid is a great way of maximising the value of your donation at no extra cost to you. To ensure your donation qualifies for Gift Aid, please sign the Gift Aid Declaration on your donation form or complete a Gift Aid Declaration Form.

From 6 April 2008, the basic rate of Income Tax is 20%, which means that the University can claim an extra 25% for every £1 donated from your gift. The example below illustrates how this benefits the University. A larger example can be found here.

For further information please contact the Office of Development and Alumni Relations on +44 (0)23 8059 9079.
