Other ways to give

There are a number of other options for making a donation to Murray Edwards College:

Payroll Giving and Matched Giving

Payroll Giving, or Give As You Earn, is an easy and tax-efficient way of giving to your chosen charity directly from your salary. Employees can authorise their employer to deduct donations from their gross pay before calculating Pay As You Earn tax, meaning that the employee will automatically get tax relief on donations at their top rate of tax.

Your employer may also have a Matched Giving Scheme, where an employee’s gifts are matched in full or in part by their employer.

Please contact your HR department to find out if your company operates Payroll Giving and/or a Matched Giving scheme.

Charities Aid Foundation (CAF)

You can make your gift in a tax efficient way via the CAF website or by sending a completed CAF voucher, made payable to Murray Edwards College, along with a completed Donation Form to the Development Office, Murray Edwards College, New Hall, Huntingdon Road, Cambridge CB3 0DF.

Leaving a gift in your Will

Leaving a gift in your Will to a charity, is a meaningful way to make an impact on a cause that matters to you, long into the future. Legacy gifts are vital in helping to fund all areas of College life for future generations. Please visit our Legacy Page find out more.
