Ways of Giving

Gifts of any size are welcomed from those who wish to help us.

Your gift can be allocated to a fund of your choice (please see left). If you have no particular preference for any of the targets, but would nevertheless like to support our School through the Thinking of Our Tomorrows campaign, giving to ‘General Support’ gives the Bursar maximum flexibility in topping up areas where there may be a shortfall or other pressing needs. 

There are many ways of supporting the Campaign, offering a range of tax benefits to the donor.  Please see the relevant details below.

Gift Aid on All Gifts

Christ Church Cathedral School is part of the Foundation of Christ Church, Oxford, a registered charity (number: 1143423).

Tax Benefits in 2013

If you pay UK income tax, it is possible to increase the value of your donation and reduce your income tax liability at the same time.

Completion of a Gift form by a UK taxpayer allows the School to reclaim a sum equal to the basic rate of income tax [higher rate tax payers can also reclaim the difference between the basic (20%) and higher (40% or 45%) rate bands].

Types of Gift

Regular Giving

A commitment is undertaken to make annual, quarterly or monthly payments for an agreed number of years (usually by standing order).  This offers the School a predictable flow of income over the medium term as well as spreading the cost of the gift.  Please see the donation form for further details.

Single Donations

A cash gift of any value can be made by cheque, credit card or bank transfer.  Please see the donation form for further details.


Legacies are highly tax efficient, particularly where Estate Duty is likely to be incurred.  Please refer to the School's Legacy Brochure for further details.

Other Gifts

If you wish to discuss any other way of support, such as giving shares or gifts made by companies, please contact the Bursar.
