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.
If you would prefer to donate by standing order, please contact the Development Office.
Tax-efficient giving (UK tax-payers)
Emmanuel is a Registered Charity (number 1137456). This means that through the Gift Aid scheme, you are able to give tax-efficiently to Emma and boost the value of your donation. If you are a UK taxpayer, Emma can reclaim the basic rate tax at no extra cost to you as the donor, boosting the value of every £1 you donate by 25p.
If you are a higher (40%) or additional (45%) taxpayer, you can reclaim the difference between basic rate and higher/additional rate of tax by declaring your donation on your Self-Assessment tax return.
Please record your Gift Aid Declaration using this online form.
A Gift Aid declaration (PDF) is also available.
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.
Payroll giving (GAYE)
It is possible to support Emmanuel through Payroll giving. Please see http://www.payrollgiving.co.uk/ for more information.
Gifts of properties and works of art
These are exempt from Capital Gains and Inheritance Tax.
Donations of shares can entitle the donor to tax relief on Income Tax, Stamp Duty, Capital Gains Tax, Inheritance Tax and Corporation Tax. For more information on giving shares, visit this page.
Making a bequest to Emmanuel has tax benefits to the donor as legacies to charities are exempt from Inheritance Tax. For more information on leaving a legacy, visit this page.
Tax-efficient giving (abroad)
Please visit this page to find out about making a gift tax-efficiently from outside of the UK.
If you are subject to tax in both the UK and the US, it is possible to give to Cambridge in America (UK) Ltd, a registered charity in the UK, and be simultaneously eligible for tax benefits in both countries.
