Gifts from the United States

The University of London is registered with the British Schools and Universities Foundation, a US-based education foundation with 501(c)(3) tax exempt status. This means alumni and friends of the University living in the United States are able to benefit from the same tax deductions on their charitable donations as they would if they gave to a United States based university or charity. Donations can be made online by credit card on the BSUF website or by completing a Donor Transmittal Form and sending to BSUF with your check, made payable to British Schools and Universities Foundation. BSUF will then send the funds to the University of London at no charge.

Gifts from Hong Kong

The University of London is registered with the Chapel & York Hong Kong Foundation for Charities, which has tax-exempt status in Hong Kong. This means alumni and friends of the University in Hong Kong are able to benefit from tax deductions on their charitable donations. Donations can be made online by credit card (selecting the University of London in the ‘Suggest a recipient’ field).

Payroll Giving

You can make a regular gift to the University of London, or any of our central academic bodies, through your payroll. Making a donation from your gross salary is the most tax-efficient method of making charitable donations. The scheme is available to those working for UK employers.

Example: Payroll gift of £20 per month.

  • Donor’s monthly pledge: £20
  • Cost to basic rate taxpayer (20%): £16
  • Cost to higher rate taxpayer (40%): £12

Your employer must have payroll giving in place in order for you to make a donation in this way. If it does, your payroll administrator can arrange for your gift to reach us.

If you have any questions about giving to the University of London, please contact us and we will be happy to help.
