Giving from the USA

Alumni and friends who are taxpayers in the USA can support the University of Birmingham through BSUF (British Schools and Universities Foundation), a 501(c)(3) charitable organisation that is recognised by the United States Internal Revenue Service.

BSUF is a tax-exempt foundation so you can claim a 100% charitable deduction on your gift for US income tax purposes. Please express a preference for support of the University of Birmingham when asked.

You can donate online by credit card or send a check. Please fill in the attached pdf form and send the form and check to:

The British Schools and Universities Foundation, Inc.
641 Lexington Avenue, 15th Floor
New York, NY

Checks should be made payable to British Schools and Universities Foundation, Inc. (or BSUF) and postmarked on or before 31 December to qualify for current-year tax deduction.

Senior Development Executive (North America) Helen Carey works with alumni and friends in North America who would like to give to support our students, research and initiatives. Please contact Helen to discuss the impact you would like your giving to have at Birmingham.

What is the BSUF?

BSUF is a non-profit, tax-exempt foundation with no full-time staff or office overheads, managed by volunteers who serve without compensation of any kind. Its operating expenses and scholarship awards are supported by income from investment of its own funds, by member dues and by contributions from friends.

Grants are paid in Sterling, at 100% of the amounts contributed by donors, who then qualify for U.S. tax deductions. There are no fees or other charges. If the donor expresses a preference for an institution supported by BSUF, it notifies that institution of the donation amount and the donor's contact information by email, the same day BSUF receives the donation. Please state your preference for the 'University of Birmingham' when asked.
