Tax-Efficient Giving

Gift Aid and UK Tax
Gift Aid increases the value of gifts received by the College from UK tax payers. It also allows higher-rate tax payers to claim tax relief on donations to charity. With Gift Aid, the College is able to reclaim an additional 25 pence for every pound donated by UK tax payers who submit a Gift Aid declaration.

To claim Gift Aid the donor must pay income and/or capital gains tax at least equal to the amount that will be reclaimed.

If you are a higher rate taxpayer, you are also entitled to claim the difference between the basic rate (20%) and the higher rate (currently 40%) on the gross value of your gift – which is calculated before the transitional relief described above. So for a gift of £100, the gross value to the College would be £125 and a higher rate taxpayer could claim back £25, in effect only spending £75.

For more information on Gift Aid, please see the HMRC website


Charities Aid Foundation (CAF)
The CAF Charity Account works like a bank account designed specifically for charitable giving.  You decide how much you want to give and pay it into your account. Because CAF is a charity, you can claim back the tax on Gift Aid donations and add it to the amount in your account.  You can also fund the account through payroll giving or by gifts of shares, exactly as with any other charity. 

More information can be found on the CAF website


Payroll Giving
Payroll giving is a way of giving an amount of money each week or month from your pay. It is a tax-effective way for employees, non-executive directors and those receiving a company pension to give a regular amount to one or more charities directly from their income. It can also be used for a one-off gift.

The donation is made from your gross salary (before tax has been taken off). This means you receive tax relief immediately on the value of your gift. Another way of looking at it is that the money you would have paid in tax goes to your chosen charity.
