UK Friends of CentraleSupelec

Created for our Alumni living in the United Kingdom, the UK Friends of CentraleSupelec fundraising structure allows you to support the Foundation while benefiting from the tax advantages provided by your country of residence.

How to benefit from tax deductions in the United Kingdom?

The UK Friends of CentraleSupelec is eligible for the Gift Aid system: any donation is matched by 25% from the UK government. For example, when you make a donation of £1000, the CentraleSupélec Foundation receives £1250.

If you are a high tax payer, you can receive additional tax relief equal to the difference between your tax rate (45%) and 20%.
In practical terms, when you make a donation of £1,000, for example, the Foundation receives £1,250 through Gift Aid and you can deduct an additional £312 from your taxes (£1,250 x 25%).
