We are extremely grateful for the support we receive from all our donors.

The Gresham’s Foundation Donation Form

Giving Shares

Donating shares to The Gresham’s Foundation can be a particularly tax-efficient way to support the School. If you would like more information, please contact the Development Office.

Gift Aid

If you pay UK income tax or capital gains tax, we can reclaim from the Government the basic rate of tax which you have already paid on the gift. This currently works out at 25p for every £1 you give.

If you are a higher rate tax payer, you can additionally claim higher tax relief via your Self Assessment tax return. This is the difference between the higher rate of tax and the basic rate. This reduces the cost to you of making the gift.

The HM Revenue and Customs website has more information about gift aid.

US Giving

Donors who are resident in the United States can qualify for an income tax deduction on gifts made to Gresham’s. If you wish to make a gift and take a US income tax deduction, you may make a donation to the British Schools and Universities Foundation (BSUF) Inc.

You can donate via BSUF using a credit card or by wire transfer, which is detailed on their donation page.

The Gresham’s Foundation is registered with the Fundraising Regulator.
