Gifts from Overseas

Giving from around the Globe

Numerous non-profit organisations help us to facilitate donations from across the Globe. Donors can make tax-effective gifts from Belgium, Bulgaria, France, Germany, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, Switzerland and the United States.

If you know of any other organisations that might facilitate gifts from any countries not listed here, please do get in touch.

Gifts from the United States

For those paying US taxes, donations to the Assisted Places Fund can be made through the BSUF (British Schools and Universities Foundation Inc). Grants made by the BSUF to the Assisted Places Fund enable donors in the US to claim an income tax deduction under Section 501 (C) (3) from the US Inland Revenue Service.

Donation by Cheque

Please download the donation form from the BSUF website and return it with your cheque to: British Schools and Universities Foundation Inc, 575 Madison Avenue, Suite 1006, New York, NY 10022-2511.

Donation by Credit Card

BSUF credit card donations are processed by 'Network for Good', a company specializing in serving nonprofit organizations. Simply click here and follow the instructions. You will need to enter 'The King Edward VI High School for Girls Birmingham Trust' when it asks for the name of the 'Approved Institution' that you want to support. Please note that the gift we receive will be reduced by 3% - the fee charged to process the donation.

Gifts from Europe

Transnational Giving Europe (TGE) is a private network of 14 countries which enables donors (both corporations and individuals) resident in one of the participating countries to support charitable organisations in other member countries, while benefiting directly from the tax advantages in their country of residence.

Currently the UK, Belgium, Ireland, Hungary, France, Italy, the Netherlands, Bulgaria, Germany, Switzerland, Slovakia, Luxembourg, Romania and Poland participate in the scheme, and both the donor and beneficiary need to be based within this group of countries. The network is, at European level, the only existing practical solution that enables donors supporting beneficiaries in other member countries to benefit from tax advantages in their country of residence.

To participate in the scheme, donors can give their gifts to the TGE foundation in their home country (see a list of TGE foundations for participating countries below) which then provides the donor with a tax receipt and TGE will transfer the gift to the beneficiary organisation.
