The Queen’s University of Belfast Foundation
Philanthropic gifts to Queen’s University Belfast are received via the The Queen’s University of Belfast Foundation. The Foundation is an independent charity set up to receive & steward philanthropic donations and corporate sponsorships on behalf of the University in the UK. The Foundation is registered with the Charity Commission for Northern Ireland. The Foundation's Charity Number is NIC102044. The Inland Revenue’s charitable status number is XR 22432.
As the Foundation has charitable status we can offer a variety of tax-efficient giving options.
Gift Aid is a UK government scheme that enables the Foundation to claim tax relief on gifts from UK taxpayers. We would encourage all eligible donors to take up this scheme to maximise your contribution. For every £1 a UK taxpayer gives, 25p in reclaimed tax is added. This means that a £100 gift with Gift Aid is worth £125 to the University. Higher rate taxpayers can also claim the difference between the rate they pay and the basic rate on the donation.
Please note that we will share relevant and necessary data with HM Revenue and Customs to enable us to reclaim the Gift Aid on your donation.
Donations from companies are not eligible for Gift Aid. However, the company can treat the gift as an allowable expense, making a saving on corporation tax.
