Making a gift

The ICAEW Foundation was launched in June 2007 aiming to raise a £10m endowment over 10 years and, so far, we have raised almost £2.2m.

The Foundation is making a real difference to the lives of aspiring, talented and ambitious young people by helping them overcome the financial barriers to becoming future professionals in accountancy and finance.

We look to all of our members - individuals and firms - as every gift, no matter how small will work to make a difference. Your help is needed to reach our goal and to ensure we can continue to support young people across the UK and in developing economics to have the career you did.  

  • A gift of £1000 will cover course materials and exam fees for a student in Malawi for one year of their three years of study towards a chartered accountancy qualification.
  • £12,000 supports a student in a UK university right up until they obtain their degree in accountancy and finance.
  • £5,000 supports a student for one year towards obtaining the new professional chartered accountancy qualification in Lesotho – covering subsistence and all course materials and exam fees.

ICAEW is covering all fundraising costs, which means that all of your gift will go directly towards the Foundation's objectives.

Gift Aid

Using Gift Aid means that the Foundation can claim back the tax you have already paid on your gift, making it worth an extra 25 per cent at no further cost to you. For example if you give £10,000, the Foundation receives a total of £12,500.

Higher rate tax payers can claim further personal tax relief on the gross value of their gift, at the higher marginal rate.

To qualify for Gift Aid you must pay income tax or capital gains tax equal to the amount the Foundation claims in the tax year.
