Make a gift

If you would like to donate or to get involved in a fundraising event, please choose the most appropriate option below.  We hope that UK tax payers will consider opting in to Gift Aid as doing so allows us to reclaim 25% on your gift.  All monies donated will support a Foundation pupil, development or improvement of our facilities or be put towards educational resources. If you have a preference for how your gift is used, please specify when making your donation.

Legacy gift

Legacy gifts have been a vital part of keeping our founding mission alive for centuries.  Unrestricted legacies to The Bridewell Foundation allow us to support the areas of greatest need in the School – now and in the future.  However, we do appreciate that you may wish to stipulate a specific area for support, in which case it would be helpful to discuss this with the Development team to ensure that your wishes can be met. As a registered charity, a legacy to The Bridewell Foundation is, in most instances, tax free and you may you qualify for a reduced rate of inheritance tax.  You can learn more here or complete a Legacy Intention form and forward it to the Development team.

Matched giving

Donating through your payroll is one of the most effective ways to donate to charity and gives your employer a chance to match fund your donation. Please contact the Development team for more information.
