Making a gift from America

If you are a US taxpayer, you can make a tax-deductible gift to St Mary’s by utilising the British Schools and Universities Foundation, Inc (BSUF).  This is an IRS-registered body [501(c)(3)] which can accept your gift on our behalf.  It is important that you always ensure that you clearly state a preference that the gift be applied to St Mary’s University.

Follow the guidelines below for how to give via the BSUF:

Gifts made by cheque (check) should be mailed to:

British Schools and Universities Foundation, Inc.
575 Madison Avenue, Suite 1006
New York, NY 10022-2511

Checks should be made payable to British Schools and Universities Foundation, Inc. (or BSUF) and postmarked on or before December 31st to qualify for current-year tax deduction.   Please use the BSUF Donor Transmittal Form

Matching Gifts:  your employer may have a Matching Gift Program which could double or triple the value of your gift. 
Your employer will provide you with a form, which, when completed should be sent along with your cheque  to BSUF.

Giving marketable securities:  There can be significant tax-benefits from making gifts of marketable securities.  Please see Instructions for Donating Securities.  To contact BSUF regarding a gift of marketable securities please send e-mail to
