Gift Aid

If you are a UK taxpayer you can significantly increase the value of your gift at no extra cost. By signing a Gift Aid declaration, you enable the University to claim back the tax you have already paid on your gift.  For every £1 donated, the University can claim 25 pence of tax at no additional cost to you; therefore a gift of £1000 is worth £1250 to Glasgow.

Higher rate tax payers benefit further. You can claim back the difference between basic rate and higher rate tax on your gift in your self-assessment tax return.

Use this calculator to find out how much your gift aid contribution is worth and how much you could reclaim if you are a higher rate taxpayer.
