Other ways to donate

Payroll giving

Payroll giving is an easy and tax-effective way to make a regular donation to charity. It is offered by thousands of employers, including UWE Bristol, throughout the UK.

With payroll giving, your monthly donation is taken from your pay before tax is deducted. This means that the University receives your donation and the tax you would have paid on that amount straight away, enabling your gift to go further at no extra cost to you.

Anyone paid through Pay As You Earn (PAYE) can use payroll giving to donate to us. However, your employer must have a payroll giving scheme in place in order for you to make a donation in this way. Your employer may refer to the scheme by using a payroll-giving agency brand name such as 'Give As You Earn'.

Many employers will also match their employees’ charitable donations made by payroll giving, which means you could make double the difference to us.

Fundraise for us

If you are doing a sponsored event, you can fundraise for any of the areas outlined in the UWE Bristol Fund from supporting students in financial hardship, to enhancing the student experience or supporting important research.

Leaving a gift in your will

Anyone can make a gift in their will, whether large or small and even a modest percentage – after you have provided for your family and friends – can have a life-changing impact.

You can direct your gift to whichever area you are most passionate about supporting, or make an unspecified gift for the University to direct to the area of greatest need at that time.
