There are several ways in which you can make a gift to Kilgraston.
SINGLE & REGULAR GIVING
For Regular and Single Gifts, download our Gift Form to complete and return to Kilgraston School. All cheques must be made out to Kilgraston Educational Foundation.
For donations to be made by bank transfer please telephone Mr Barry Farrell, Bursar on 01738 812 257.
Kilgraston Educational Foundation is a registered charity so you can claim Gift Aid on the donations you make.
Providing you are a basic rate taxpayer (20%), HMRC will add 25p to every £1 you donate which means you can really boost your donation, without it costing you a penny more.
For further information, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
GIVING FROM OVERSEAS
If you are a non-UK resident, you can make a gift by bank transfer or credit card payment by contacting the Finance Office on +44 (0) 1738 812 257
The rules governing gifts from overseas residents have now been relaxed, so gifts can be made in a tax-efficient way. As an overseas resident you will qualify for tax relief provided you have income or capital gains charged to the UK tax authorities that are at least equal to the gross amount of donation.
Gifts of capital assets other than shares can be made directly to Kilgraston without incurring any liability to Capital Gains Tax or Inheritance Tax. These gifts might include personal possessions such as property, books or works of art.
If you have your own company, you may find this method of giving a particularly attractive and cost-effective way of supporting Kilgraston. When a company gives to a charity, the value of the gift can be offset against the company’s highest rate of Corporation Tax.
Companies pay their donations Gross and will not have to make any Gift Aid declaration. Your company simply makes whatever donation you want and then tax relief is claimed against the value of the gift when calculating profits for Corporation Tax. Company gifts can be made on a regular or one-off basis.
