Tax Efficient Giving

Gifts of Cash by Gift Aid

Making a gift of any size using the Gift Aid Scheme enables King's College to reclaim from the Government the basic rate of tax on the gift which will already have been paid by the donor, including transitional relief announced in the 2007 budget. If you live overseas and wish to give efficiently please contact the Development Office for further information.

Higher rate tax payers can claim higher rate relief on their donations by including them in the Gift Aid box on their Self Assessment Tax Return.

US Tax Deductions

US taxpayers can qualify for income tax deductions on gifts made to King’s College Taunton by giving through the British Schools and Universities Foundation (BSUF) in the United States. This is a 501(c) (3) US tax exempt non-profit organisation that supports King’s fundraising appeals.

If you have US taxed income, gifts to us are tax deductible to the full extent allowed by US law. If you make a gift to the BSUF, IRS regulations let you express a preference for support of King’s Schools Taunton.
