Making a gift from the US

Gifts to Kellogg College can be made to Americans for Oxford Inc., which has been determined by the United States Internal Revenue Service to qualify, under Sections 501(c)(3) and 509(a) of the Internal Revenue Code, as a tax exempt public charity to which tax-deductible contributions may be made.

Please note that to maintain the deductible status of gifts, US law requires that the Board of Directors retain control and discretion concerning grants to Oxford.  Thus the wording used on the Americans for Oxford Gift form states, ‘it is my preference that $ xx be allocated to Kellogg College’.  Whilst this phrasing is required legally, in practice the Board of Directors will always honour the wishes of donors.

Making a planned gift

American alumni and friends can now also choose a number of other ways to make a tax-efficient planned gift.  Whilst a gift through a will is the most common form of planned gift it is also possible to make gifts of stocks and securities, life insurance, artwork, real estate and other assets.  Through these schemes it is possible to make a planned gift to the College but receive a tax benefit almost immediately, whilst also producing income for you or your family.
