How to make a gift
Donors from the UK, who also pay tax in the UK, can maximise their giving by agreeing to 'gift aid' their donation as the University enjoys charitable status as one of the exempt charities listed in Schedule 2 to the Charities Act 1993. This adds 25p per £1 donated. In addition, higher-rate tax-payers in the UK can reclaim the difference between the lower and higher-rate of tax in their self-assessment tax form, thus maximising their gift further.
In the United States, the organisation Americans for Oxford is a registered 501(c)(3) public charity, which enables gifts from US tax-payers to be fully tax-exempt. The University can also process gifts of shares, which combines relief on income and capital gains tax.
