Give As You Earn 

The University of Suffolk is pleased to accept gifts via Payroll Giving (also known as Give As You Earn). Your donation is taken directly from your pre-tax salary, meaning that your donation reduces the amount of tax you pay each month. 

For example making a £20 donation:

As a 20% taxpayer: You pay £16 and receive a £4 reduction in tax. 

As a 40% taxpayer: You pay £12 and receive an £8 reducation in tax. 

If you are an employee of the University of Suffolk you can make a gift to us this way by completing the following Give As You Earn form

If you are a friend of the University and would like to make a gift to us via payroll giving you will need to contact your payroll department/provider and ask them to set this up. To discuss this in more detail please contact 01473 338737 or email giving@uos.ac.uk.

Leaving a Legacy

A legacy is something you leave behind to support others when you are no longer around. Our primary thought when drawing up a will is our family and friends, and how our assets or wealth can support our nearest and dearest when we are no longer with them. Writing a will can be a sobering prospect and one that requires careful consideration. However, it can also be an inspiring opportunity to make a lasting difference to the wider world.

Many people consider drawing up their will as an opportunity to think about and give back to causes or issues that are particularly important to them. Leaving a gift to charity in your will, is an excellent way of supporting something that you feel strongly about and is the highest honour a charitable body can receive.

Recognising a charity in your will can also relieve the tax burden on your family or friends after your death. Any money pledged to charity is inheritance tax exempt.

There are many ways your legacy could support the University of Suffolk for generations to come, and we’ll make sure that, wherever possible, your legacy is fulfilled and your support is directed where and how you would like.

If you would like more information about making a gift to the University of Suffolk in your will or would like to pledge your support, please contact the Alumni and Development Team on 01473 338737 or email giving@uos.ac.uk
