International giving

You may be able to give tax-efficiently if you live outside the UK. 

We are grateful to the many global alumni who give back to the boys and the school. 

You may be able to give tax-efficiently if you live outside the UK.  Below is a list of known services for international gifts from Europe and the United States.

Transnational Giving Europe (TGE) is a private network of 19 countries which enables donors (both corporations and individuals) resident in one of the participating countries to support charitable organisations in other member countries, while benefiting directly from the tax advantages in their country of residence. To participate in the scheme, donors can give their gifts to the TGE foundation in their home country which then provides the donor with a tax receipt and transfers the gift to the beneficiary organisation. Please note that it can take up to three months for the donation to reach us. To find out more about Transnational Giving Europe, please visit their website.

For those paying US taxes, donations to the Assisted Places Fund can be made through the BSUF (British Schools and Universities Foundation Inc). Grants made by the BSUF to the Assisted Places Fund enable donors in the US to claim an income tax deduction under Section 501 (C) (3) from the US Inland Revenue Service.

Donation by cheque

Please download the donation form below and return it with your cheque to: British Schools and Universities Foundation Inc, 575 Madison Avenue, Suite 1006, New York, NY 10022-2511.

Donation by Credit Card

BSUF credit card donations are processed by ‘Network for Good’, a company specializing in serving nonprofit organizations. Simply click here and follow the instructions. You will need to enter ‘The King Edward’s School Birmingham Trust’ when it asks for the name of the ‘Approved Institution’ that you want to support. Please note that the gift we receive will be reduced by 3% – the fee charged to process the donation.

For more information about the BSUF, visit their website. Our US-based representative for BSUF is Frank Booth (OE 1965). Frank is happy to answer any questions and can be contacted at

‘As an expatriate Brit living in the USA I make all my donations to KES via BSUF. Unlike some other agencies, which may take a commission, they transmit all of my gift to KES. They do this in a timely manner, and I get all the paperwork I need for the appropriate tax deduction.’
