Regular Gifts

Regular gifts make a great difference to St Edmund's, as a commitment to make annual, quarterly or monthly instalments for an agreed number of years enables the College to plan for the future with a known and regular income for the immediate future. For more information on how you can make your gift tax-efficient, visit our page on the Gift Aid scheme and giving from abroad.

Regular gifts can be arranged by:

  • Setting up donations on-line through the Charities Aid Foundation for the Student Support Fund or the Master's Developmnent Fund
  • Completing a Direct Debit donation form which should be returned to: Development Office, St Edmund's College, Cambridge CB3 0BN. Please remember to complete the Gift Aid declaration if you are UK taxpayer
  • Over the telephone via a Paperless Direct Debit. Please call a member of the Development Team on +44 (0)1223 761342
  • Via the Give As You Earn scheme. Payroll giving allows you to make a tax-free donation to St Edmund's College directly from your salary or pension. Payments are normally of a set amount, made monthly, but it is also possible to make one-off payments. Your employer may also match your donation, which could as much as double its value to St Edmund's College. In order to set up a gift via payroll giving you need to contact your HR or Charity Department. They will ask you to complete a form which requires your employer to make a deduction from either your salary or pension. Please also keep the College informed if you do not wish for your gift to remain anonymous

All gifts via Direct Debit will be followed with a thank you letter and a Direct Debit Guarantee which acts as a record of your gift.

The 1896 Society

‘The 1896 Society’ recognises those who have regularly given their support to the College's fundraising projects. The name commemorates the date when Father Edmond Nolan, Vice-President of St Edmund’s College, Ware, moved to Cambridge and established the embryonic St Edmund’s House, initially with one student.

Alumni and Friends who make a one-off donation of over £500, or donate regularly to the College over a three year period will be invited to join the Society and invited to a triennial gathering. The inaugural event will be in 2016. Members of the Society will also receive correspondence to update them on the Society’s membership and life at the College.
