Headington School, Oxford is a registered charity (No 309678) and can reclaim tax on all donations that UK taxpayers make under the Gift Aid scheme, increasing the value of the gift to Headington and decreasing the cost of the gift to donors.
The best ways of giving are generally:
Spreading gift payments over a period of time is for many donors the effective method of making a significant gift to Headington. Gifts may be given monthly or annually.
For those who prefer to make a single lump sum payment, giving by Gift Aid is the most tax-efficient way of contributing. Gift Aid entitles Headington to reclaim from HMRC the basic rate of income tax you have already paid on your gift. With the basic rate of income tax at 20 per cent, for every £1,000 you donate, Headington will receive an extra £250 at no extra cost to you.
If you are a higher (40 percent) or additional rate (45 percent) tax payer you can claim tax relief, calculated as the difference between the basic rate of tax (currently 20 per cent) and your tax rate, expressed as a percentage and applied to the total gross value of the gift.
Companies are able to claim Corporation Tax relief on all donations to charities.
You may have your own charitable trust through which you wish to make your gift. Although there will be no tax recoverable for the School, it is possible to make recurrent gifts through such trusts, enabling very significant sums to be contributed by relatively modest quarterly or annual contributions.
Gifts of publicly-quoted shares offer the donor the possibility of claiming relief on Capital Gains Tax and Income Tax, which can make such gifts extremely tax-efficient, depending on the donor’s tax position.
If you wish to make a gift to Headington and take a US Internal Revenue Service income tax deduction, you may make a donation to the British Schools and Universities Foundation (BSUF) expressing a preference for Headington School.
BSUF is a charitable organisation recognised by the US Internal Revenue Service under Section 501 (c) (3) of its codes. BSUF was founded more than 40 years ago to enable US residents to support British schools and universities in a tax-efficient manner and represents more than 200 schools and universities in the UK.
