How can I give?
Keele University values the support of its students, alumni, neighbours and friends. Every gift, no matter how large or small, improves the student experience, our world-class research, or contributes to other significant projects.
There are many ways in which you can give individually to Keele, which might be regular by direct debit or as one-off gifts or endowments; for some these gifts will be made during a lifetime and for others as a parting gift made through a Will
We also welcome gifts from trusts and foundations, companies and organisations, as one-off or returning philanthropic gifts but on occasion sponsorship too.
The University is a registered charity, which not only means that we stringently observe charity law but also that gifts made to Keele can be made tax effective, both for individuals but also for companies.
For individuals paying tax in the United Kingdom tax relief can be applied to the gift by use of the UK’s GiftAid programme, and higher rate taxpayers can benefit from additional relief too ( 20 or 25% claimable through individual tax returns); for company gift through corporation tax relief.
Gifts from those living and giving from abroad we are able to accept through the normal channels, and have a special provision for US gifts under the 501c3 tax provision, so they like UK gifts they can be made tax effectively too.
It is our preference to be able to have conversations with all our donors to ensure that your gift is applied to the area of our work that you would wish it, and we invite you to talk to us prior to sending a gift. For an initial confidential conversation please call 01782 733003.
