Tax-Efficient Giving for US Taxpayers
Westminster School is extremely grateful for the support it receives from its US-based Old Westminsters, as well as UK-resident American current and former parents, and we are keen to ensure that they are able to support the School in the most convenient and tax-effective manner possible. To this end we offer tax efficient vehicles for giving from both the UK and the USA and are always happy to discuss options that might better suit each donor’s personal circumstances. The information below provides general details on the options available, however we always recommend that prior to making a gift, you first consult your personal financial advisor to determine which method is best for you.
American residents can make tax-efficient gifts through the Westminster School Foundation US (registered charity number 99-0369928). The Westminster School Foundation US is incorporated in the State of Delaware and carries 501c3 status from the US Internal Revenue Services, which means that all qualifying donations made by US taxpayers will be treated as tax-deductible.
