Old Etonians, parents and friends can support Eton in many ways – through regular or one-off gifts by direct debit, bank transfer, or cheque; legacy gifts; gifts of shares; and other ways.
You can find further information below on the available giving options as well as how to make your gift tax effectively from various countries. For information on Eton’s priority areas read more here.
Whichever way you choose to make your gift to Eton, and whichever area you give to, your generosity is greatly appreciated.
Give by Post
If you would prefer to give by post, you can do so by printing out the following form and posting it to:
St Christopher’s House
Windsor, SL4 6DW
Give Shares or by Bank Transfers
Giving shares can often by a very tax-effective way of supporting Eton. UK taxpayers who make a gift of shares pay no capital gains tax on the sale of those shares, and can use the value of their donation to reduce their taxable income. If you would like to make a gift of shares please contact the Development Office.
To make your donation via bank transfer please contact our office to receive further information.
Give Tax Effectively: UK Gift Aid
If you are a UK taxpayer, we can claim an extra 25% in Gift Aid on top of your donation. Additionally, higher-rate and additional-rate tax payers can claim back the difference between basic rate tax and the higher rate of 40% or 45% on the gross value of their gift through Self Assessment. A gift of £100 (£125 including Gift Aid) would therefore be eligible for a rebate of £25 for a 40% taxpayer or £31.25 for a 45% taxpayer.
Simply fill out the Gift Aid declaration form and return to our office.
