Ways of giving


Remember that if you are a UK taxpayer, the University can claim Gift Aid. This government scheme will make your donation worth 25% more to us and at no extra cost to you! All you need to do is fill in the Gift Aid section of the donation form or tell us verbally that you want us to claim Gift Aid. ​​​

Regular Giving​

Giving to the University regularly is an excellent way to make your gift. So if you don't feel comfortable parting with a lump sum, you can contribute regularly through direct debit. You can choose to do this on a monthly, quarterly or annual basis. Donate Online Now!

Payroll Giving

If your employer operates a charitable payroll giving scheme, you can make tax efficient gifts to the University. When you make a gift through payroll, your donation is taken before tax is deducted, so each £1.00 you give will only cost you 80p, and if you're a higher rate taxpayer it will only cost you 60p. Once you have set up your donation, you don't have to do any more. Every week or month, the University will benefit from your generosity. You can download a Give As You Earn (GAYE) form and give this to your payroll department. Just remember to fill in our charity number as 1140762.

Making a Single Gift

Not everyone feels comfortable committing to regular giving so the University is also grateful to accept single gift payments. You can make single gifts in a variety of ways including credit or debit card, bankers orders, cheques or Charities Aid Foundation (CAF) vouchers/cheques.

We can also accept donations of up to £10 by text. All you need to do is:
Text CMET13 followed by the amount you would like to donate (£1, £3, £5 or £10) to 70070 e.g. CMET13 £10.

Other Ways of Giving

The University is pleased to be able to accept gifts of shares, securities and other investments. Individual taxpayers are eligible for tax relief on the full market value of these gifts. A similar provision now applies to companies in respect of corporation tax.

Information about tax relief for giving land, buildings, shares and securities to charity are available on the HM Revenue and Customs website.
