Making a Corporate Gift
Companies may be able to claim corporation tax relief in their tax returns on donations made to charities.
Stocks and Shares
It is possible for donors, both individual and corporate, to gain significant additional tax benefits through donating shares to Stowe. Not only is the Capital Gains Tax on the increase in value of shares avoided, but also the donor may be able to offset their income tax liability by the size of the gift. Please do speak to your Financial Planner for more detailed advice.
Recognition for your Generosity
We are particularly keen to recognise the generosity of our donors publicly, so far as they would wish us to do so - we will, of course, comply with any requests for anonymity. The biennial Governors' Report will provide an opportunity to thank all our donors, and highlight the progress that the Campaign has made during that period. We will also recognise the contribution of donors to specific projects when those goals are realised. In thinking of making a gift, you may be prepared to consider one of the following particular levels:
Those donors who are able to make a gift of £5,000 (whether as a one-off donation, or over time) we will be delighted to welcome as 'Patrons' of the Campaign for a period of five years from the date of the gift, or first instalment.
We will be delighted to recognise, for their lifetime, those who are able to make a gift of £25,000 (whether as a one-off donation, or over time) as 'Fellow' of the Campaign for Stowe.
At upper levels of giving, there are also opportunities for rooms, other aspects of the School's fabric, and even Scholarships and Bursaries to be 'named' in accordance with the wishes of donors, in perpetuity. As with all aspects of giving to Stowe, the Development Director would be delighted to discuss naming possibilities with you.
