Make your gift go further 

  • Gift Aid: If you are a UK taxpayer, you can choose to Gift Aid your donation. This means that every £1 you donate, another 25p is added to your donation, at no extra cost to you. Simply tick the box on the donation form to confirm you are happy to add Gift Aid to your donation.
  • Payroll giving: Your gift could be worth even more to the University by giving through the payroll giving scheme. The scheme allows you to donate directly from your pre-tax salary. Ask your Payroll department if the scheme is available.
  • Matched giving: Does your employer have a matching gift scheme? If so, your gifts to Aber University can be matched by your employer. Ask your HR or Payroll department if a matching gift scheme is available and how it works.
  • Challenge gifts: We welcome discussions from major supporters who will offer substantial donations provided that Aber University can match them. Contact us if you’d like to discuss further.

Leaving a legacy It is not without reason that legacies are often called the ‘greatest gift of all’. Leaving a gift can have a huge impact on future generations of students and can shape the future direction of the University. Learn more about leaving a gift in your will on our Legacy webpage.

Stocks and shares Donating through stocks and shares is the most tax-efficient method of supporting, benefiting both you and Aber University.
