Gift Aid

Gift Aid increases the value of your donation at no additional cost to you. Find out more about Gift Aid

By ticking the box below you agree to the following declaration, which will allow us to claim Gift Aid on your donations:

"I want to Gift Aid my donation, and any donations I make in the future or have made in the past 4 years to the University of Cambridge. I am a UK taxpayer and understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year it is my responsibility to pay any difference."


Please notify us if you:

  • no longer pay sufficient tax on your income and/or capital gains
  • change your name or home address
  • want to cancel this declaration.

If you pay Income Tax at the higher or additional rate and want to receive the additional tax relief due to you, you must include all your Gift Aid donations on your Self-Assessment tax return or ask HM Revenue and Customs to adjust your tax code.
