Generous contributions from donors enable us to support our students even further; some of whom might otherwise not take up the opportunity that a University degree provides.

Whether it’s £5 or £5,000, donations help us ensure that Bath Spa students can make the most of their time here. With your help, we can enrich and expand students’ experiences, as they prepare for their future.

Leaving a gift in your will

Leaving a gift in your will is often one of the most significant donations a person can make.

Whatever you want to achieve – supporting students, developing our campuses or investing in research, we can ensure that your gift has impact and achieves your vision.

We would welcome the opportunity to talk to you further about what we might be able to achieve together.

Gifts of shares, property or in kind

Giving shares  is one of the most tax-effective ways of donating to Bath Spa University and can be a very financially beneficial way of supporting our students and enhancing our research.

Gifting art, property or services also has incredible potential to enhance the institution and what it can offer.

Tax efficient giving

If you're a UK tax payer, you can make every £1 you give – or have given – worth 25p more, just by telling us. This is because the government’s Gift Aid scheme allows the University to reclaim tax on donations. This means that you can make an even bigger difference at no extra cost to you.

If you pay higher rate tax you can claim further tax relief in your Self Assessment tax return.
