Make a Gift

The support of our alumni and friends is very important to the College. It is a key part of our strategy to increase the funding available to our students, and to develop the best possible academic and pastoral environment for their study.

Online giving

Tax efficient ways of giving

Depending on where you live and whether or not you are a taxpayer, there are several ways you can increase the value of your gift to your College beyond what it costs you.

UK taxpayers

Please make sure to cover your donation under the Gift Aid scheme to increase the value of your gift by 25%, courtesy of HM Customs and Revenue. Higher rate tax payers will get a further deduction from their taxes.

USA taxpayers

Please send a cheque to Americans for Oxford, an American 501c3 charity, with clear instructions that it is for Wolfson College (include postal address: Linton Road, Oxford, OX2 6UD). You may also use the online giving method offered by Americans for Oxford.

Continental European Residents

Tax efficient giving is available through the Transnational Giving Europe Scheme. For more information go here.

Canadian taxpayers

The University of Oxford is recognised by the Canadian Revenue Agency as a prescribed institution under Section 3503 of the Canadian Income Tax Regulations. On receipt of your donation, we will ensure that you are sent a receipt for Canadian tax purposes. For more information go here.


Leave a Legacy

If you would like to leave a Legacy to Wolfson College you can complete a Bequest Response Form which is available to download below in the Legacy Brochure. Our Legacy Brochure also provides information on the different types of bequests you can make. 

If you are a US tax-payer, you can find information on planned giving on the University of Oxford North American Office website.

Further information about legacies and bequests is also available on the Oxford Thinking website. If you have any questions or need any further information please contact the Wolfson Alumni Office.
