Gift Aid

If you are a UK 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 or more 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 would result in £125 going to The University of Western Ontario (UK) Foundation.

Simply complete the Gift Aid declaration (PDF, 93 KB) and the UK Western donation (PDF, 307 KB) forms. Send both forms along with your cheque.
