US tax effective giving

12 Oct 2023
Written by Darren Donaldson

Donations made to George Heriot’s School from the US can now be made tax efficiently if made through the British Schools and Universities Foundation (BSUF). Heriot’s will send you a formal acknowledgment once we have been informed of your gift by BSUF.

British Schools & Universities Foundation (Federal Tax ID 13-616-1189) is a charitable organisation approved by the US Internal Revenue Service under code Section 501(c)(3). 

There are three ways to give from the US:

Donate by Check/Cheque – Make your check/cheque payable to British Schools & Universities Foundation together with a transmittal letter saying that you wish your donation to go to George Heriot's School.

Donate By Wire - Please contact Anita Harrison by email, . Please ensure any donation is allocated to George Heriot's School.

Donate Online - You can donate online via Network for Good. Please ensure your donation is allocated to George Heriot's School. Please note online donations via BSUF through Network for Good incur a 3% fee. To make your donation visit BSUF and make your donation online.

Unless otherwise stated, your gift will support George Heriot's Foundation400 Fund. If you would prefer your gift to support a specific fund, for example the 2024 'We are all George Heriot' Bursary Campaign, please email for further information.

Every donation helps George Heriot's School to deliver the founder’s vision and ensures the legacy of the Foundation continues.
