Western is represented in the United Kingdom through its charitable foundation, The University of Western Ontario (UK) Foundation.
The Foundation is governed by a Board of Directors comprised of Western alumni in the U.K., and the University’s President and Vice-President (External Relations). The Board oversees all giving through the U.K. Foundation, ensuring that donor wishes are met, and that the UK Foundation Scholarship is awarded each year.
From the U.K., cheques are payable to The University of Western Ontario (UK) Foundation and may be sent, with a completed Giving to Western Donation Form, care of our local accounting partner:

If you are a U.K. taxpayer, you can declare Gift Aid and maximize the impact of your contribution to Western.
How it Works:
If you make a gift of £100 to The University of Western Ontario (UK) Foundation and declare Gift Aid, we can recover the basic rate income tax of your gift’s value at no additional cost to you. For example donating £100 through Gift Aid would result in £125 going to The University of Western Ontario (UK) Foundation.
