Donations from the USA
To make a gift and take a U.S. income tax deduction, you may make a donation to the British Schools & Universities Foundation (Federal Tax ID 13-616-1189), a charitable organization approved by the U.S. Internal Revenue Service under code Section 501(c)(3). Write your check to the order of the British Schools & Universities Foundation. You should express a preference for Ampleforth College in your transmittal letter, not on your check. Such preferences are respected by the Foundation but all grants are made at its sole discretion, as required by the IRS.
As a registered charity, the St Laurence Education Trust can reclaim any UK tax you have paid on your gift via the Gift Aid scheme. If you are a UK taxpayer, for every £1 you donate, 25p can be added to the value of your gift, at no extra cost to you. To allow us to collect your Gift Aid, if making an online donation please tick the Gift Aid box. For other donations we will send you a Gift Aid form.
Higher Rate Taxpayers can claim the difference between the rate you pay and the basic rate on your donation. We recommend that you speak to your tax adviser about this.
