How To Give

Donations to the College are extremely welcome: all gifts, of whatever size, make a great difference to us. It is possible to specify how you would like a gift to be used and the Development Director is very happy to discuss possibilities and details.

The College is a Registered Charity (Charity Reference No: 1137456). It is simple to donate online, by downloading a donation form or by BACS.

If you would prefer to donate by standing order, please contact the Development Office.

Tax (UK tax-payers)

Gift Aid

Donations by Gift Aid can be of any value and made over any period of time. Gift Aid donations from all UK tax payers are particularly helpful to Emmanuel, as the College can reclaim the basic tax rate, 22%, already paid by the donor on the gift. Giving in this way is advantageous to higher rate UK tax payers, who can reclaim the difference between the higher and basic rates of tax (i.e., 18%) already paid on the gift. To do this, donors have to write to their tax office or enter details on their tax return. More information about Gift Aid is available.

A Gift Aid declaration (PDF) is available; if donating online, please click on the appropriate box to the right.

Tax-efficient giving from a company

Donations to the College offer tax benefits to companies when computing Corporation Tax liability. No forms are now necessary for companies to make tax-efficient donations to the College; the Development Office can advise.

Other ways of giving

  • It is possible to support Emmanuel through Payroll giving. Please see for more information.
