Company matched giving & GAYE
If your company has a matched giving scheme, you could significantly increase the value of your gift to Hertford.
You can also make a gift to Hertford from your pre-tax salary via the Give As You Earn (GAYE) scheme. Your HR department should be able to help set this up.
Gift of shares or assets
It is also possible to make a gift of shares or assets to Hertford. These gifts can be transferred to the college free of Capital Gains Tax.
Gift AidHertford College is a registered charity in the UK, which means that UK tax-payers can add Gift Aid to their donations.
All we need is a declaration from you that you are a UK taxpayer (e.g. an email saying ‘I confirm I am a UK tax-payer’) and your home address (as registered with HMRC) – and immediately your donation will be worth 20% more.
Reclaiming tax on your self-assessment
For higher rate tax-payers, it is also possible to reclaim the difference between the basic and higher rate of tax on your self-assessment tax return – which effectively means that your donation will cost you less.
For example: a higher rate tax payer makes a monthly donation of £100. At the end of the year s/he has given £1,200, which with Gift Aid is worth £1,500 to the college.
If s/he fills in a self-assessment tax return at the end of the year s/he can reclaim £300, which means the gift has cost £900, or £75 a month.
