Thank you if you are considering making a donation, gift or legacy to Bridgnorth Endowed School.
Your support will make a real difference, enabling us to enhance the educational experience of our pupils by providing first-rate facilities and learning opportunities.
There are a number of ways you can offer your support:
Online Donations or Cheque Payments
You can use personal online banking to make a one-off payment to the school or to set up a standing order. Alternatively, you can send a donation to Bridgnorth Endowed School, care of the Alumni Office.
If you are a UK taxpayer, the school can reclaim tax paid, which increases the value of your gift/donation by 25%. A gift aid form to accompany your donation can be found here.
Under the Payroll Giving Scheme, employees can authorise their employer to deduct charitable donations from their pay before calculating Pay As You Earn (PAYE) tax.
This means that the employee automatically gets tax relief on donations at his or her top rate of tax. There is no limit on the amount that can be given under the scheme.
To find out if your company operates the scheme, please contact your Human Resources or Personnel department.
Leaving a Legacy
A legacy is a very special gift – meaningful and enduring, and it will benefit future generations of Endowedians.
Funds from your legacy are normally allocated at the discretion of the Headteacher and governing body, however, you may wish to choose where your gift is directed: for a special project, for non-specific bursaries or scholarships, or for a named bursary or scholarship.
Money left to a charity is also exempt from inheritance tax and may help reduce the overall amount of tax that must be paid on your estate.
