Gift Aid

As a UK taxpayer, when you make a donation to the Edinburgh Academy Foundation, we are able to claim back the tax you have paid. This increases your generous gift by 25%.

We are able to make this claim as long as you sign a ‘Gift Aid Declaration’ or make sure to tick the Gift Aid box when donating online.

Donating from Outside the UK

The Edinburgh Academy Foundation is registered with both the British Schools and Universities Fund and the American Fund for Charities. Please visit either website www.bsuf.org or www.americanfund.info to facilitate your gift, citing the Edinburgh Academy Foundation as your preferred beneficiary.

Canadian residents will be provided with a receipt for their tax records from the Academy. Cheques should be made payable to The Edinburgh Academy to be able to claim tax relief.

Share transfer

The transfer of shares to the Foundation is free from any Capital Gains Tax. All you need to do is inform us that you wish to transfer shares and we can arrange for a Crest Transfer to take place.


We can accept donations by means of CAF charity cheques and charity credit cards. You complete the details required regarding the amount you wish to donate and send the information to us. We will then arrange for CAF to transfer the funds to us.
