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.

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.

Making a donation by credit card

To make a donation by credit card to the Queen Mary University of London Foundation which qualifies for a US tax deduction, 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", enclosed with a "Donor Transmittal Form" or another form of written expression of preference for support of the Queen Mary University of London Foundation and 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 (TGE)

Queen Mary University of London Foundation is now registered with Transnational Giving Europe (TGE). If you are a European resident, you may be able to maximise your gift through TGE which is a collaborative giving scheme offered by a partnership of European foundations. It enables donors resident in one of the participating countries to be able to securely offer financial support to non-profit organisations in other member countries. Donors will then be able to benefit directly from the tax advantages provided for in the legislation of their country of residence. The scheme is currently operational for donations from the following European countries:

  • Belgium; Bulgaria; France; Germany; Hungary; Ireland; Italy; Luxembourg; Netherlands; Poland; Portugal; Romania; Slovakia; Slovenia; Spain; Switzerland; United Kingdom
