Enhancing the value of your gift

Tax efficient giving can enhance the value of your gift to the Queen Mary, University of London Foundation if you are a UK tax payer.

Gift Aid
The value of your gift to the Queen Mary, University of London Foundation can be enhanced by as much as 25 per cent if you sign a Gift Aid Declaration [DOC 37KB].

Gift Aid allows the Foundation to claim the Basic Rate of Income Tax, currently 25 per cent, on your gift. 

Examples:

Basic-rate tax payer
Donation to QMUL Foundation: £100
Amount reclaimed from HMRC: £25
Total received by QMUL Foundation: £125

Higher-rate tax payer
Donation to QMUL Foundation: £100
Amount reclaimed from HMRC: £25
Total received by QMUL Foundation: £125
Amount reclaimed by donor on tax return: £25
Cost to donor to give £125 to QMUL Foundation: £75

Self-Assessment Tax Return
If you fill in an annual Self-Assessment Tax Return, you are now able to give some or all of any tax refund, which you may be due, to a charity of your choice, by simply ticking the box on your Self-Assessment Tax Return and quoting the QMUL Foundation's unique reference number YAT 56FG. For more advice, please email the Development team or telephone +44 (0)20 7882 6429.
