Make your gift to The Cliftonian Society today

Thank you for choosing to make a gift to The Cliftonian Society.  It is quick, easy and secure to make your gift online.

Every donation, whatever its size, can make a genuine difference to the education of Clifton’s boys and girls.

Ways of Giving

To make a donation by direct debit (whether "regular" or "single") to either the Clifton College Development Trust (for immediate use for Scholarships & Bursaries), or to the Clifton College Endowment Fund (where funds are endowed to support pupils for years to come), please click on either of the links below:

Tax-Efficient Giving

Donations to the school represent tax-efficient giving opportunities, through gift aid, tax rebates for highest earners, and tax deductible donations for US citizens.


As a registered Charity we can reclaim tax on all donations made by UK taxpayers. For every £100 donated we will receive an extra £25 at no extra cost to you. If you pay a higher rate tax, you can also claim the difference between the higher rate of tax 40 and/or 45% and the basic rate of 20% on the total gross value of your donation.

For example: If you donate £100, the total value of your donation is £125 – so you can claim back:

£25 - if you pay tax at 40% (£125 x 20%)

£31.25 - if you pay tax at 45% (£125 x 20%) plus (£125 x 5%)
