How to donate
There are many ways you can donate:
Single or Regular donations
This can either be single donations, regular (e.g. monthly) donations or gifts in kind.
The nature of your gift and the amount you are able to give is not the most important thing. What is important is your support.
If you are a UK tax payer don’t forget to Gift Aid your donation.
Then, click on the Make a Donation button and complete the form.
Send us a gift
You can send us a gift by donating securely online by credit / debit card.
All you need to do is find the project you wish to support, click on the Donate Now button and complete the online form.
You can donate a single gift or set up a Direct Debit to make monthly payments to the project.
Alternatively, you can download and complete a donation form.
Completed donation forms, with cheques made payable to ‘The University of Nottingham’, can be sent to the Campaign Office.

Giving from overseas
Alumni and supporters who pay tax overseas are eligible for tax deductions on any gifts they make to the University.
Gifts from America should be made to The Friends of The University of Nottingham: America, Inc ─ a Private Charitable Foundation under American law (Tax Employer Identification Number (EIN) 13-3619622). These gifts are tax deductible to the maximum amount allowed under US law, which applies to gifts of cash, shares and property, made either now or in your Will. Tax-deductible contributions from US corporate matching gifts programmes will also be accepted. Please send the relevant documents with your donation.
For more information please email John Kingham, Treasurer of The Friends of The University of Nottingham: America Inc., or contact him by telephone on 215-493-5143 or in writing at:

Tax efficient giving
The University of Nottingham has exempt charitable status (reference X15294), which means we can reclaim the basic rate of tax on your donations at no extra cost to you. It makes your giving go further.
If you pay higher rate tax, you can claim the difference between the higher rate of tax (40 per cent) and the basic rate of tax (20 per cent) on the total (gross) value of your donation to the University.
So if you donate £100, the total value of your donation including Gift Aid is £125 - so you can claim back 20 per cent of this (£25) for yourself. You can make this claim on your Self Assessment tax return if you receive one.
