If you wish to give to a specific project or fund within College, please state which one. Information about current projects can be found here. Otherwise your gift will be received as a 'general donation'.

  • Give as you earn

With Give As You Earn - the UK’s largest payroll giving scheme - you can give directly from your pre-tax salary, so money that would normally be deducted in tax will go to charity instead. You just decide how much you want to give each month - it could be a couple of pounds, or hundreds or thousands - and who you want to give it to. Then your donation comes out of your pay packet before the government claims it in tax.

  • Legacies
