Gift by Voucher

Please complete your CAF or GAYE voucher (payable to Keble College Development) and send it to College's Development Office, indicating which area of College life you wish to support.

Making a Gift of Shares

A tax efficient way of supporting Keble If you make a gift of shares to the College, you can claim tax relief equal to the market value of the shares on the day you make the gift, together with any associated costs such as brokers' fees. The relief is against your income tax for the year.

For example, a gift to the College of £1,000 worth of shares, made by an individual who is a higher rate taxpayer, would reduce their income tax by up to £500 for the year. Additionally, the benefactor would not have to pay any Capital Gains Tax (CGT) on any increase in the value of the shares since they were bought. If the shares have gone down in value, however, it is not possible to use this loss to offset any other CGT liabilities. For further advice and examples see the HMRC.

Should you have any queries about making a gift of shares to Keble please contact the Director of Development, Jenny Tudge.

Payroll Giving

Payroll Giving donations are deducted before tax so each £5.00 you give will only cost you £4.00, and if you are a higher rate tax payer it will only cost you £3.00.  The Government encourages payroll giving to charities and does offer matching incentives in this area.  For further information, visit www.payrollgiving.com or contact your payroll department.  When filling in the appropriate form, you may need to quote the College's charity number: X6453.

Legacy giving

As an exempt charity, the College pays no tax on gifts of money or property bequeathed in a legacy.  This method of giving has Inheritance Tax benefits for the legator.  The College has recently established the Douglas Price Society, to acknowledge those who have informed the College that Keble is remembered in their will.  When making a formal declaration in your will it may be helpful to include the College's charity number: X6453.

Acknowledgement of support

All donors (except those giving anonymously) will be listed in The Keble Review which is produced annually in the autumn.
