Make a gift in the UK

Single and regular gifts can be made by direct debit, by cheque, or by credit or debit card. The College can also accept gifts of shares and of real property.

Many companies will match the charitable donations made by their employees. This is sometimes by as much as 2:1, making a significant difference to the value of your giving at no extra cost to you. View our A-Z list of companies that offer matched giving.

Donations from UK Taxpayers benefit from the government’s Gift Aid Scheme. For every £1 donated, the College can claim 25 pence of tax at no additional cost to you. Thus a gift of £100 is worth £125 to Magdalen. Higher rate tax payers can also benefit from tax relief by claiming back the difference between the higher rates of tax at 40 or 50 per cent and the basic rate of tax at 20 per cent on the total value of their gross donation.
