Gift Aid It

If you are a UK tax payer, Oakham School Foundation can reclaim an additional 25p on every £1 you give.  Higher rate tax payers can claim the difference between the higher rate of tax and the gross donation (including Gift Aid) in their tax return, eg: a gift of £1,000 is worth £1,250 to the Foundation and costs a 40% tax payer just £750.  For your gift to qualify for Gift Aid, simply complete the relevant section of your Donation Form.

Giving from the USA

Old Oakhamians and friends based in the USA can give tax efficiently through the BSUF (British Schools and Universities Foundation).  Gifts should be sent directly to the BSUF website.

Gifts of stocks and shares

Gifts of listed stocks and shares by UK tax payers attract full relief from Capital Gains Tax and allow the donor to claim Income Tax relief on the full value of the gift at the time the shares or securities are transferred to the School.  Please contact the Foundation for further details

Leave a Legacy

Leaving a legacy to the Oakham School Foundation can bring considerable tax benefits to the donor that vary according to the value of the Estate.  Please click here for further information.  Those who are happy to notify us of their intentions in advance are warmly welcomed into our John Buchanan Legacy Society.
