Giving: Transformative Giving - Marymount International School London

Giving: Transformative Giving

“I think Marymount London is a wonderful school and it has made an amazing positive influence on my daughters’ development. The most important thing we can give our children is a good education; half of that we try to give at home and the other half normally happens at school. Marymount is the place that blends all these values together, successfully.”

Marymount London is a unique, warm and welcoming School, that places the student at the centre of the educational experience. Transformative gifts help Marymount reach new levels of innovation in learning spaces, ensuring students have opportunities to experience every element of the holistic education the MYP and IB programmes provide.

Global Giving - giving from overseas

As an international school benefitting from a global community, Marymount welcomes gifts from all over the world. Donations can be made online or by downloading our gift form. International donors are currently able to make tax efficient donations from the US and Europe.

Giving from the USA

US residents are able to make tax deductible donations in favour of Marymount International School by giving to the British Schools and Universities Foundation, Inc (‘BSUF’), which is a charitable organisation recognised by the US Internal Revenue Service under section 501(c)(3) of their Codes.

BSUF was founded more than 40 years ago to allow US residents to support British schools and universities in a tax efficient manner, and today supports more than 100 such institutions. Marymount International School is a full member, allowing our supporters to receive full tax exemption on their gifts.

Donations can be made by downloading a US Donor Transmittal Form and sending it, together with your cheque (made payable British Schools and Universities Foundation), to BSUF at the address below. Please note that donors are asked to express a ‘preference’ for Marymount International School in their covering letter – although such preferences are respected by the board of BSUF, the law requires all grants to be made at its sole discretion.

Legacies of Learning - planning a gift in your will

Leaving a gift in your will to Marymount is straightforward and tax efficient. As a registered charity, no. 1117768, a legacy to Marymount is free of Inheritance Tax so your gift can reduce the amount of your estate liable for tax.

There are a number of different types of legacies which can make a real difference to the future of the Marymount. We encourage you to discuss with a solicitor which type would best suit your circumstances.

A Deed of Variation

If you are a beneficiary of a legacy you can transfer all or part of the bequest to the School under a Deed of Variation. Not only will Marymount benefit from your gift during your lifetime but the gift itself will be transferred free of Inheritance Tax.
