Ways of Giving

You can give to the School, via The Harrow Development Trust, registered charity No. 296097,  by any of the following easy and flexible means. 

If you are a UK tax-payer please remember to include a Gift Aid declaration as this will increase the value of your donation by 25% (25p for every £1 or £250 for every £1,000) as we can reclaim this amount from HMRC. If you are a higher-rate taxpayer see below for ways you can reclaim tax yourself through giving. 

regular giving - the three yards annual fund

By giving regularly, whether monthly or annually, your regular contribution, added to others, makes a significant difference to the School. 

If you have a UK bank account you can make a donation directly via Standing Order from your bank account at fixed intervals (monthly, quarterly or annually) for a set period or indefinitely.  Please complete the Gift Form if you wish to set up a Standing Order directly from your bank account and return to us (please do not send this directly to your bank).

tax efficient giving

  • Taxpayers at 40%: the HMRC will increase your tax-free allowance by the difference between 20% and 40%. For a donation of £1,000, this is a saving of £250, thus reducing the net cost of your gift to £750.

  • Taxpayers at 45%: the HMRC will increase your tax-free allowance by the difference between 20% and 45%. For a donation of £1,000, this is a saving of £312.50, thus reducing the net cost of your gift to £687.50. 

Single Gift  Net cost to donor (taxpayer at 40%) Net cost to donor (taxpayer at 45%) Gross value to Harrow 
£1,000 £750 £687.50 £1,250
£4,000 £3,000
 
£2,750 £5,000
£24,000 £18,000 £16,500

£30,000

 


To claim your tax-free allowance, simply enter details of your donations on your tax return. 

Legacy giving

All bequests, from UK tax payers, to the School are exempt from Inheritance Tax (currently 40%). A further 4% discount on Inheritance Tax may apply when at least 10% or more of the 'net value' of the estate is left to charity. The threshold for Inheritance Tax is currently £325,000. We are most grateful to donors who make provision in their Will in favour of Harrow and they may count on the same recognition and gratitude as other benefactors.
Visit our Leaving a legacy page for more information.

stocks and shares

Individuals can obtain a double form of tax relief by donating gifts of shares and securities to Harrow.  The value of the gift can be offset against any income tax liability and in addition the gift would be exempt from any liability for capital gains tax.
For a higher-rate taxpayer at 40% who donates £10,000 worth of shares, this will mean a reduction of £4,000 in his Income Tax liability, as well as avoiding any Capital Gains Tax liability. The reduction is even greater for top-rate taxpayers at 45%.  

A further benefit to the donor is that the tax deduction will be based on the value of the shares at the date of gift, rather than the original cost. This is likely to be higher: eg. A higher rate donor who donates shares valued at £10,000 (with a cost of £3,000) receives income tax relief of £4,000, £1,000 more than original cost. 

tax refund gifts

If you are a UK taxpayer and complete a Self-Assessment tax form, you can use the form to donate to the Harrow Development Trust all or part of any refund due to you. To do this, use the code CAS49MG when completing your Self-Assessment. You can also choose to make your refund a Gift Aid donation.

gifts of assets

Some donors choose to gift a specific personal possession to Harrow. Examples include property, jewellery, antiques and works of art. The value of the gift can be offset against any income tax liability and in addition the gift would be exempt from any liability for capital gains tax.

For a higher-rate taxpayer at 40% who donates an asset worth £10,000, this will mean a reduction of £4,000 in his Income Tax liability, as well as avoiding any Capital Gains Tax liability. The reduction is even greater for top-rate taxpayers at 45%.
