Giving to the Reading Foundation

Thank you for considering a possible donation or legacy to the Reading Foundation.

Reading School, its pupils and its buildings have benefitted substantially in the past from generous and far-sighted gifts and bequests from the School's former pupils, teachers, and their families. You can donate to the Reading School 1125 Fund for immediate projects - for further details see school website

Alternatively you may choose to donate to the Reading Foundation where funds are held to contribute to the long term benefit of the School. As you can see from this website, such donations can give benefits ranging from school prizes for excellence and achievement, to contributing key funding to projects such as building the refectory.

Make your gift go further

If you are a UK taxpayer, you can increase your gift to the Reading Foundation through the Gift Aid scheme. By giving with gift aid you will be allowing the Reading Foundation to reclaim the basic rate income tax (25%) already paid on your donation at no additional cost to you.

To qualify for gift aid, you must have paid income or capital gains tax that is equal to, or more than, the amount of tax that is claimed by each charity you have donated to within that tax year.
