Making a Gift from Canada

The University of Oxford represents an educational institution specifically designated for charitable status under the Income Tax Act (Canada) and Regulations [Section 3503 thereto]. Gifts made by Canadian taxpayers to Merton College via the University of Oxford Development Trust are therefore fully tax-deductible.

If you would like to make a donation to Merton College, you can do so in two ways:

  • By post: Please download and print a Canada donation form and send it with your cheque, payable to 'The University of Oxford Development Trust', to the Development Office, Merton College. We will pass your donation to the University Development Office who will issue a tax receipt, usually within two months.
  • Online by credit or debit card: Please visit Merton's page on the University of Oxford's Online Giving pages, and complete the online form. Remember to check the box indicating that you are a Canadian taxpayer and would like the University Development Office to issue a tax receipt. The University can only process credit card donations in sterling.

All gifts made via the University of Oxford Development Trust in favour of Merton College will be forwarded to the college on a monthly basis.

Thank you for supporting Merton!

Making a Gift from Germany

Tax-deductible gifts can only be made through the German Friends of Oxford University: full details can be found in the information below, available in both English and German. Merton does not have a facility for online gifts, because of the rules governing tax-deductible gifts in Germany.
