Supporting Merton: Your Gifts at Work

Why your contribution really matters

Here are some examples to illustrate how your gift to the Annual Fund could benefit students at Merton:

  • £10 per month for a year would help offset the average cost of an undergraduate hardship award
  • £20: 40 donors each giving £20 a month for four years would fund the College contribution to the cost of a Fellowship for one year 
  • £65 per year would pay for a student book grant or buy library books 
  • £150 would subsidise a student play or buy new sports equipment
  • £500 to £750 would pay for a typical student travel grant
  • £1,000 from 30 donors would give start-up funds to a research project     
  • £5,000 from 3 donors would help an undergraduate to stay as a graduate
  • £25,000 would enable a donor, or group of donors, to name a room in Rose Lane V
  • All donations regardless of size or frequency are very welcome.

Did you know...

  • as a basic-rate UK taxpayer, your net gift of £100 enables the College to reclaim an extra £25.00?
  • as a higher-rate UK tax payer, you can reclaim additional tax from the Inland Revenue – your gift of £250 with Gift Aid is worth £312.50 to the College and you can reclaim tax of £62.50, so that your gift of £250 costs you £187.50

If you are not a UK tax payer, please visit our Making a Gift page for help with donating from other countries.
