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.
