In the UK
UK residents can make tax-efficient charitable donations via a number of schemes.
Employers may also operate schemes that match their employees gifts made to charity (ask your HR department for more information).
Gift Aid is a UK government scheme that enables the College to claim tax relief on donations from UK tax-payers. We encourage all eligible donors to take up this scheme to maximise their donation, for every £1 a UK taxpayer donates, 25p in reclaimed tax is added. A £100 gift is, with Gift Aid, worth £125 to the College, at no extra cost to the donor.
Please note that we share relevant and necessary data with HM Revenue and Customs to enable us to reclaim the Gift Aid on your donation.
Donations from companies are not eligible for Gift Aid, though the company can treat the gift as an allowable expense, making a saving on Corporation Tax.
UK Taxpayers who are paid under PAYE (Pay as You Earn) can maximise regular donations to the College through payroll giving. Gifts made in this way are taken directly from the donor’s gross pay, giving immediate tax relief at the highest rate of tax for which they qualify.
If you would like to give to the College in this way, please request an application from your employer, specify that you wish to support The Queen’s College Oxford and your employer will then deduct your gift from your salary to send through to the College before tax is applied. You will need to tell us that you are planning to make such a gift, as we are not automatically notified.
Giving Stocks and Shares
Gifts of shares are subject to the most tax relief, combining relief on Income and Capital Gains Tax. In the UK, shares qualify for tax relief equal to the market value of the shares on the day the gift is made, including associated costs such as broker fees. The tax relief can then be claimed for the year in which the gift is made. Please click here to make a gift to Queen’s via the University of Oxford Development Trust.
Tax efficient gifts from Switzerland can be made via the Swiss Friends of Oxford University.
Americans for Oxford (AFO) is a 501(3)(c) organisation that provides a tax-efficient giving route for Old Members resident in the US. You can make a gift via the AFO website or by using the AFO giving form.
The University of Oxford is recognised by the Canadian Revenue Agency as a prescribed institution under Section 3503 of the Canadian Income Tax Regulations. On receipt of your donation, we will ensure that you are sent a receipt for Canadian tax purposes.
