Donations to CCLS from Overseas

We are an international community at CCLS and we welcome donations from our alumni and supporters who reside overseas. Residents of some countries are able to donate in a tax efficient way via organisations which support charitable giving to not-for-profit institutions. For further information, please follow the appropriate link below.

British Schools and Universities Foundation

Queen Mary University of London is a member institution of the British Schools and Universities Foundation Inc (BSUF); in the last five years BSUF have managed gifts on behalf of the university of over US $1m. BSUF have now simplified the process for donors to make gifts by credit card.

To make a donation by credit card to the Queen Mary University of London Foundation, please visit British Schools and Universities Foundation.

BSUF credit-card transactions are processed by Network for Good, a company specialising in serving non-profit organisations. However, donors should be aware that a 3% handling charge will be applied.

To avoid the 3% charge, you can make your donation by cheque. The cheque should be made payable to "BSUF" and enclosed with a "Donor Transmittal Form" or another form of written expression of preference in support of the Queen Mary University of London Foundation. This should be mailed to:

British Schools & Universities Foundation
575 Madison Avenue, Suite 1006
New York
NY 10022-2511

Please note that as BSUF has limited resources and offer its services without charge, the Donor Transmittal Form encourages donors to consider becoming members of the Foundation.

BSUF is also able to inform beneficiary institutions of the names of its donors, provided they have not expressed an intended wish to remain anonymous.

All gifts received are acknowledged and thanked by the Queen Mary University of London Foundation.

Transnational Giving Europe
