If you wish to make a gift and take a US income tax deduction, you may make a donation to the British Schools and Universities Foundation (BSUF) Inc. This is a charitable organisation recognised by the US Internal Revenue Service under Section 501 (c) (3) of their Codes. The BSUF's Federal ID Number is 13-616-1189.
The BSUF has formally approved Oundle School as a full member.
You should express ‘a preference for Oundle’ in your transmittal letter, not on your cheque, which is to be drawn to the order of the British Schools and Universities Foundation. Such preferences are respected by the BSUF, but all grants are made at its sole discretion, as required by the IRS.
The BSUF is a charitable organisation founded over 40 years ago to enable US residents to support British schools and universities in a tax efficient manner. It represents over 100 famous schools and universities including Harrow, Uppingham, Sherborne, Bedford, Eton and Rugby - to name but a few. As a result, our membership will entitle you to receive full tax exemption status.
Please complete the BSUF form below and mail it, together with your cheque, to Chris Close (D 82) who will aggregate and forward them to the BSUF, including an overall 'expression of preference' for Oundle in his letter of transmittal. If you wish the tax deduction within the current calendar year, you should send your gift no later than four weeks in advance of 31 December. Please email the Oundle Society advising us of the amount of your donation and whether you have a preference for how your gift is used. If you do not specify a preference it will be directed to our Unrestricted General Fund.
If you have any questions, please contact The Oundle Society offices.
