International Gifts

The support of Carolina’s global community is critical to the success of students and researchers at Carolina. We’re working to create systems and procedures to enable international donors to receive tax benefits when making a charitable gift to UNC. Currently, tax beneficial giving options are available for the United Kingdom.

United Kingdom

Gift Aid is a United Kingdom tax incentive that can increase the value of charitable monetary gifts by UK donors, including dual taxpayers. Gift Aid allows charities registered in the United Kingdom to claim back the basic tax paid by donors on their donations.

UNC Global has registered with JustGiving, the UK’s first online fundraising platform, to redeem the additional Gift Aid value of gifts under £1,000. Donations are made online.

Visit the Chancellor’s Global Education Fund profile on JustGiving to donate now.

For assistance with this process, contact Denise Bates, +1.919.962.5374, dmbates@email.unc.edu.

UNC Global has registered with CAF American Donor Fund (CADF) to redeem the additional value of gifts over £1,000. To make your first gift, follow the steps below. For subsequent gifts, follow steps 3 to 5 only.

For assistance with this process, contact Denise Bates, +1.919.962.5374, dmbates@email.unc.edu.

  1. Complete the account opening form.

CADF is obliged by UK anti-money laundering regulations to identify the donor before they accept the donation. These disclosures are standard in the UK and are subject to the UK Data Protection Act, which dictates that the information may be obtained and used only for the stated purpose and must be kept securely to minimize the risk of data loss. This form only needs to be completed once.

  1. Complete the Gift Aid declaration form.

This form is optional, but it is required if you intend for CADF to recover applicable Gift Aid on your behalf in order to increase the value of your donation. This form only needs to be completed once, but it does need to be resubmitted if you change your name or UK tax address.

Stock or Cash Wire

Once CADF has set up your account, they will send you the details of their CADF bank account (USD or BDP, UK onshore or UK offshore as the case may be) to wire your donation to.

Gifts by Check

If you would like to send a check, you can do so but will still need to include all three forms listed above (Steps 1, 2, and 3). Send these forms with your gift(s) to:
