International Donors

As Stanford GSB’s influence continues to grow around the globe and our alumni increasingly move outside US borders, overseas support is becoming more critical to our success.

International donors may be able to realize tax benefits through gifts. We recommend checking with your local tax professional for details. 


Canadian taxpayers may claim a tax credit for gifts to Stanford University, which is listed on Schedule VIII of the Canadian Income Tax Act under “Leland Stanford Junior University (Stanford University), Stanford, California.”

United Kingdom

The Stanford Trust is a charity (#1022726) registered with the UK Charity Commission. Through the Trust, donors may participate in the UK Gift Aid Scheme — a form of tax relief for single cash gifts made to The Stanford Trust and other UK charities by residents in the United Kingdom.

If you have any questions or comments about making a gift from the United Kingdom, please contact Eileen Flood at +44 20 7502 2813.

To make your gift:

  1. Send a cheque payable to the following address: The Stanford Trust, c/o Eileen Flood, 19 Norcott Road, London, N16 7EJ
  2. Send a written note with your gift indicating that you would like the Gift Aid tax relief applied to your gift. The Stanford Trust will then apply to the Inland Revenue to claim a portion of the tax you have already paid.
  3. If you pay tax at a rate higher than the basic tax rate, you should apply to the Inland Revenue for the additional tax relief.

There is no limit to how often Gift Aid can be used to make gifts to The Stanford Trust.
