Tax-efficient giving

Your gift can often be enhanced by a variety of tax-efficient giving initiatives.

The University of Oxford is an exempt charity for the purpose of charity legislation. This means that, although it has charitable status, it is exempt from the requirement to register as a charity with the Charity Commission so it does not have a charity reference number.

There are several schemes available to help donors based in various countries to make tax efficient donations.
