Charity cheque (CAF)
We are happy to accept charity cheques, such as those administered by the Charities Aid Foundation (CAF). Please make charity cheques payable to The Gresham’s Foundation.

Donating shares to the Gresham’s Foundation can be a particularly tax-efficient way to support the School. If you want more information please contact the Development Office.
We are enormously grateful for the support we receive from all our donors who have pledged to give on a regular basis. It does not matter how small or large the gift, it is the regularity over a period of time that is so important as it enables us to forecast our income and plan accordingly. By giving regularly (whether monthly, quarterly or annually) your contribution combined with other regular donations can collectively make a big difference to the School.
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. Please remember to agree to the Gift Aid Declaration when you complete the Donation Form.
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.
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.
BSUF was founded more than 40 years ago to allow US residents to support British schools and universities in a tax efficient manner, and today supports more than 100 such institutions. The BSUF has formally approved Gresham’s School as a full member, allowing our supporters to receive full tax exemption on their gifts.
Donations can be made by downloading a US gift form and sending it, together with your cheque (made payable British Schools and Universities Foundation), to BSUF at the address below. Please note that donors are asked to express a ‘preference’ for Gresham’s School in their covering letter – although such preferences are respected by the board of BSUF, the law requires all grants to be made at its sole discretion.
Donations and completed gift forms should be sent to:
British Schools and Universities Foundation, Inc
575 Madison Avenue, Suite 1006
New York, NY 10022-2511
You can donate via BSUF using a credit card.
US residents are able to make tax deductible donations in favour of Gresham’s by giving to the British Schools and Universities Foundation, Inc (‘BSUF’), which is a charitable organisation recognised by the US Internal Revenue Service under section 501(c)(3) of their Codes.
