Tax-Effective Giving

There are a number of ways of making a tax-efficient gift which benefit the College while at the same time reducing the amount of tax paid by the donor.

Should you wish to donate and do not live in one of the countries listed below, or would just prefer to send your donation directly to the College, please complete the donation form and send it with your donation to The Development Office, King’s College, Cambridge CB2 1ST. Alternatively, you can make a gift online using a variety of debit and credit cards.
 

UK Donors

Donations of cash to the College by UK tax payers are covered by the Gift Aid scheme. Under Gift Aid, the College can recover £0.25 from the Inland Revenue for every £1.00 donated – at no extra cost to the donor. The College receives no extra tax benefit from gifts made by Charities Aid Foundation (CAF) voucher.

US Donors

If you are resident in the USA, you can make a tax-efficient gift to Cambridge in America (CAm), a professional development and alumni relations office based in New York. CAm is a registered 501(C)3 organisation enabling American donors to give tax efficiently for the benefit of the University and the Colleges. 

Donations can be made online or alternatively please send a donation form with your check, made payable to 'Cambridge in America', to: Cambridge in America, P.O. Box 9123 JAF BLG, New York, NY 10087-9123, and suggest that the Directors of Cambridge in America exercise their discretion and allocate your gift to support King’s College.

If you are subject to tax in both the UK and US, you can give through Cambridge in America (UK) Ltd, a registered charity in England, and be simultaneously eligible for tax benefits in both countries.

Many companies in the USA now operate gift-matching schemes. When an employee makes a charitable gift, the company matches this (in full or in part). To find out if your company operates such a scheme, and to obtain a copy of their matching gift form, please contact your Human Resources or Personnel Department.

Canadian Donors

Canadian taxpayers can make tax-efficient gifts directly to King’s College. Please complete this form and send it with your cheque, if applicable, to the Development Office, King’s College, Cambridge CB2 1ST. A receipt acceptable to the Canadian tax authorities will then be issued by Cambridge University and forwarded to you by King’s College.
