Thank you for choosing to make a donation to the University of Exeter Campaign. Every gift makes a huge difference to our students and to our research capabilities.

Regular giving

You can make a regular commitment by setting up a direct debit. Giving on a regular basis allows us to plan for the future and ensure we can guarantee money where it is needed most.

Unfortunately if you do not have a UK bank account you are unable to set up a direct debit.

A Gift in your Will

Legacies from supporters provide invaluable and transformational support to the work of the University. The University of Exeter is a charity which means that EITHER your donation will be taken off the value of your estate before Inheritance Tax is calculated OR, if you leave more than 10% of your estate to charity, your Inheritance Tax rate would be reduced. 

Learn more about supporting the Exeter Forever Endowment Fund.

If you would like more information, please email the team at legacies@exeter.ac.uk

Payroll Giving

For alumni who want to give to us:

Through Payroll Giving, you can make a regular donation whilst benefitting from tax relief - for example, every £10 you give will only cost you £8, saving £2 at the basic tax rate (higher rate taxpayers will only pay £6).

All you need to do is ask your payroll department to deduct a regular donation from your salary. You may also need to supply them with our charity number, which is X9538.

Please note that there is a 3-month lead time between setting up payroll giving and us receiving your first donation, but we will confirm receipt as soon as possible.

For University of Exeter Staff:

University of Exeter staff can make a donation to our Campaign via Payroll Giving. Simply complete and submit the Donation Choice Form and Charitable Giving South West (our Payroll Giving provider) will do the rest – they will advise our payroll department of the deduction from your pay and then distribute the money when your payroll deduction is received.

The major benefit of giving this way is the tax saving you will receive as donations are taken before income tax is applied. For example, a £10 pledge ‘costs’ a standard rate tax payer £8 and a higher rate tax payer £6, but the nominated charity still receives £10.

If you have any questions, please contact Charitable Giving by telephoning 01822 611180 or by email at mail@charitablegiving.co.uk

The University of Exeter is contracted with Charitable Giving (Registered Charity No 1128013 Company Registration No 6754603), an HMRC-Approved Payroll Giving Agency, to administer its Payroll Giving scheme.

A Gift from the US

Donors residing in the US can make their donation tax effectively by giving to the University of Exeter US Foundation. The University of Exeter US Foundation is a public tax-exempt charitable body organised under the provisions of section 501(c)(3) of the US Code. The Foundation was established to help link former students who now live and work in America as well as providing support to the University.

A Gift from Hong Kong

The University of Exeter is registered with the Hong Kong Foundation for Charities (HKFC). The HKFC allows donors who reside in Hong Kong to make donations to organisations outside of Hong Kong in a tax-efficient manner, as they are able to issue gift receipts for Hong Kong tax purposes. Hong Kong tax payers should make their donations via the University of Exeter Hong Kong Foundation for Charities’ website.
