We are happy to assist with tax-efficient ways of supporting MCS.
Our current Conveniamus campaign is raising funds so that MCS can offer both short-term support to those profoundly impacted by the pandemic as well as ensure long-term success of the pupils and school.
Every gift up to £50,000 has been matched by an OW donor in former teacher Nigel Bates’s memory. We are delighted to announce that a second OW, who joined MCS in 1945, has come forward to match an additional £25,000 in gifts made to the campaign.
We need your support to maximise this generous contribution – any gift amount will be greatly appreciated.
If you would like to join us with a gift, please follow the link below.
Both regular and single gifts can be made to MCS in a tax efficient way by completing a Gift Aid declaration.
Gift Aid enables MCS to claim an additional 25% from the Government for your gift at no extra cost to you. Higher-rate taxpayers can themselves claim tax relief on their gross donation when completing their annual Self Assessment tax return.
If you are for the first time choosing to allow MCS to claim gift aid on your donation, we will ask you to please send the following statement back to us – electronically – with the relevant details personalised.

Some companies offer another form of tax-efficient giving: payroll or matched Giving. Payroll Giving is deducted from your salary before tax, with the result that each pound that you give will cost you 80p (or 60p for higher-rate tax payers). Many companies also offer a Matched Giving scheme. Rates vary according to your company, but could in some cases treble your donation.
We work with the British Schools and Universities Fund (BSUF) in the US. You can give via BSUF, either online or by sending them a cheque.
Please ensure that you make your cheque out to BSUF in US dollars stating a preference at the bottom of the cheque for Magdalen College School, Oxford, and let them know if you would particularly like to support new Buildings or Bursaries.
Please download a BSUF Gift Form and send it with your cheque to ensure they have all the necessary information.
We work with CAF Canada for our Canadian donors. You can make an online gift via CAF Canada (and their partner Canada Helps). Please click on ‘Donate to an Established Fund’ on that page and chose ‘Magdalen College School Canadian Friends’ from the dropdown menu. If you would like to donate via cheque, please download a CAF Canada Gift Form and send along with your donation. For further information about tax-efficient giving tax-efficiently from Canada, please download CAFC How To Give.
