Leave a gift in your Will
It is possible to leave a gift to the University in your Will. This method of giving is favoured by many alumni and friends who want to make a difference after their death. A gift of this nature also reduces your inheritance tax liability.
Give stocks and shares
Individual taxpayers are eligible for tax relief on gifts of certain shares, securities and other investments. This is in addition to capital gains tax relief on gifts of assets to charity.
To discuss gifting stocks and shares, please contact the Development & Alumni at email@example.com.
Give as a reunion/class group
Class reunions continue to be one of the most treasured alumni traditions at the University of Glasgow. Graduates return to campus each year to mark their time at Glasgow, gather with old friends and classmates, share memories and reconnect with the University. This is also a great opportunity to give back to the University and help its current students.
The University’s Class Giving Programme allows alumni to celebrate their respective milestone year reunions by supporting the priorities of the institution that brought them together in the first place. Through the generosity of reunion classes, funds raised can collectively make a significant difference.
Your class can choose the priority area your gift will support, whether that’s campus development, scholarships or any initiative across the University of Glasgow. Please visit our Giving to Glasgow page to find out more about the current campaigns, and do not hesitate to get in touch with us to discuss your individual class priorities.
We can commemorate your milestone by dedicating a gift inscription in the name of your year group, in our Giving to Glasgow publication and online donor wall. There may be further opportunity for inscription depending on the area your class decides to support, we are more than happy to talk you through this.
For further information on including a fundraising element in your reunion celebrations, please contact Alumni and Development at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Payroll giving allows you to save on the amount of tax you might usually pay, as the gift comes directly from your gross pay. Please contact your personnel or human resources department to find out if they operate this scheme.
Many employers have matching gift programmes and will match charitable contributions made by their employees. If you're not sure if your employer operates such a scheme, please contact your personnel or human resources department to find out.
Charities Aid Foundation
You can open a charity account with the Charities Aid Foundation (CAF) and make donations direct to the 'University of Glasgow Trust'. Please make CAF vouchers payable to 'University of Glasgow Trust' and please send to the below address:

Europe (outwith the UK)
European residents (outwith the UK) may wish to maximise their gifts and donate tax efficiently using Transnational Giving Europe (TGE). TGE is a partnership of leading European foundations that are collaborating internationally to foster charitable giving within Europe. Donors can give via the national TGE partner and the donation is then transferred to the 'University of Glasgow Trust'. Giving in this way allows supporters from Europe to financially support Glasgow while benefiting directly from the tax advantages within their own country.
Find out if your country is represented in this scheme by visiting the TGE website where you will also find the contact details of the organisation that can assist you in making a tax-efficient donation to Glasgow.
The UK (Gift Aid)
If you are a UK taxpayer, you can significantly increase the value of your gift at no extra cost to yourself by signing a Gift Aid declaration. Gift Aid enables the University to reclaim the tax you have already paid on your gift. This means we can claim an extra 25p for every £1 you donate.
If you are a higher rate taxpayer, you can benefit further by claiming the difference between the rate you pay and the basic rate on your gift. Use our Gift Aid calculator to find out how much your Gift Aid contribution is worth and how much you could reclaim.
Please note that it is the donor’s responsibility to ensure that enough tax has been paid to qualify for Gift Aid. If you have not paid enough tax to cover the tax deducted from your Gift Aid donations, HMRC may ask you to pay the difference. You can review HMRC’s guidance on Gift Aid here.
