More than ever, we need your help to offer all students the chance to study and thrive at Goldsmiths. Collectively, donations from our alumni and friends translate into a significant resource for our students.
Your gift, no matter how large or small, can help our students face the challenges of university life.
Other ways to give
Donate by bank transfer
You can donate by making a bank transfer via online/telephone banking or in person at your local branch.
If you wish to donate via this method, please email development (@gold.ac.uk) and we will share the account details.
Gifts from non-UK residents
Gifts from the United States
Goldsmiths is able to receive tax-deductible donations from the United States through the British Schools and Universities Foundation (BSUF). The BSUF accepts donations by credit card by selecting Goldsmiths College from the list of approved institutions, or a donation form can be downloaded to be sent with a cheque, payable to 'British Schools and Universities Foundation'. The BSUF will then send the funds to Goldsmiths at no charge.
Gifts from Canada
As a College of the University of London, Goldsmiths is a prescribed University, which means we are recognised as a charity by the Canadian Revenue Agency. On receipt of your gift, we can send you the necessary acknowledgement if you are a Canadian taxpayer and wish to claim the tax back. Please email Jo Bell, Administrative Officer, at development (@gold.ac.uk) for more information or call +44 (0)20 7896 2697.
Gifts from the rest of the world
Leave a legacy
If you are updating your will or making one for the first time, you have the opportunity to express your support for the University by means of a bequest.
If you should choose to remember the University in your will, you would not only be making a generous gift, but you would also be helping to ensure that the Goldsmiths tradition lives on.
Boost your donation by 25p of Gift Aid for every £1 you donate
As a charity, Goldsmiths can claim Gift Aid on your donation if you are a UK taxpayer. Gift Aid allows Goldsmiths to reclaim an extra 25p for every £1 you donate at no additional cost to you.
Gift Aid is reclaimed by the charity from the tax you pay for the current tax year. To qualify for Gift Aid you must:
- have paid at least as much in Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax in that tax year as you declare is eligible for Gift Aid
- make a Gift Aid declaration that gives Goldsmiths permission to claim it
If you pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax in the current tax year than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all your donations, you will need to pay any difference.
If you are a UK taxpayer, please complete the Gift Aid Declaration on the donation page or form on which you are making your gift to Goldsmiths. Your address is needed to identify you as a current taxpayer, and completing this declaration allows Goldsmiths to reclaim tax on your current donation, donations you make in the future and donations you've made in the past four years unless you notify us that your circumstances have changed.
If you have any questions, please email Alison Woolley, Director of Development and Alumni Relations, at alumni (@gold.ac.uk) or call +44 (0)20 7896 2619.
