How can I help now?
You can choose to make a gift annually, quarterly or monthly by standing order or you may wish to make a single gift by cheque, credit card or debit card.
Giving a small amount regularly by standing order is one of the best ways you can support the University as it allows us to plan for the future, assured of a regular income. The Development Fund also welcome donations made via the Charities Aid Foundation.
If you would like to make a donation please download and complete the Regular Gift Form or the Single Gift Form and send it to
University of Winchester
You can now donate online with our new Virgin Money Giving website
If you have any queries, please telephone 01962 827532 or email Development@winchester.ac.uk
One gift, twice the impact
The good news is that every £1 given to the University's Development Fund is being matched by £1 from the Government under a scheme running until 31 July 2011. The Matched Funding scheme includes donations from individuals, charitable trusts and foundations.
If you are a UK tax payer and you make a gift of £100 to the University, the cost to you is £100 but the value of your support to our current students is £253 because the gift and the Gift Aid (excluding transitional relief) will be matched.
Whether you choose to make a regular or single gift, you can make your gift go further with Gift Aid. Using Gift Aid means that for every pound you give, we can claim an extra 28p from the Inland Revenue, helping your donation to go further.
This means that, for example, £25 can be turned into £32 provided you are a UK tax payer. Imagine what a difference that could make, and most importantly it doesn't cost you a thing. If you want to make your donation go further, 'Gift Aid it' by signing the declaration on the relevant donation form.
