Make your donation go further

We can help you make the most of your gifts to the RGS Bursary Campaign.

We always advise you seek professional legal and financial advice to provide the appropriate guidance to suit your particular circumstances. If you would like to know more about tax efficient ways to give to the Road to 2035, please call us on +44 1483 880665 or email if you have any questions.

Gift Aid

( UK Tax Payers Only)

Gift Aid is one of the most effective ways of boosting your donation to the Road to 2035. For every £1 you donate, we can claim an extra 25p of tax from the government, at no extra cost to you. Either complete the online form or download and post a copy.

More details on Gift Aid can be found here.

Matched Funding from your employer

Matched Funding gives your employer the chance to boost your fundraising by matching the money you have donated.

Some companies offer this on a pound-for-pound basis, while others will specify an amount they’re prepared to give.

The process is simple to set up, easy to administer and can be customised to suit both yours and your employer’s matching criteria. Company funds used for Matched Giving are tax-effective and can be deducted from your organisation’s corporation tax.

Ask your organisation to match your donation through either a ‘Give as you earn’ Payroll Giving scheme or match your personal donation to us directly.

Payroll Giving

With payroll giving, the donations you make to the Road to 2035 are taken from your pay before income tax is deducted.

This means we get a regular income, and your donation goes further and costs you less. Anyone who pays UK tax through PAYE can donate through Payroll Giving. Ask your employer about joining the UK’s biggest payroll giving scheme.

Gift Shares

Donating shares is one of the most tax-effective ways to give to charity.

There’s no capital gains tax on the shares you donate. And you can claim tax relief on any costs linked to your donation, like brokers’ fees.

To gift the Bursary Campaign shares:

Gift Of Property

Donors of land or property are entitled to claim tax relief for the full market value of the land or property donated.

Bequests of property through a gift in your will could also help with inheritance tax planning on your Estate.

US Donors

Donors who are taxpayers in the United States can qualify for an income tax deduction on donations made to the RGS Bursary Campaign.

The Royal Grammar School Guildford is an approved institution recognised by the British Schools and Universities Foundation (BSUF), a US-based education foundation with 501(c)(3) tax exempt status.

Donors can donate to RGS Guildford via BSUF online or download a ‘Donor Transmittal Form’. This means that donors based in the US benefit from the same tax deductions on their charitable gifts as they would if they gave to a US-based charity.

Make sure to write ‘Royal Grammar School Guildford’ as your approved institution.

The BSUF will provide you with a receipt which you can use for your tax return and notify us of your donation so we can thank you for your generosity.

“I have personally experienced the transformative power of an RGS education. The impact it had on my life is immeasurable, and I am eager to contribute to ensuring that future generations have the same life-changing opportunities”
