Tax efficient giving

Important information to help make your gift more tax effective.

New Zealand

Gifts of money by New Zealand resident taxpayers to a charity now receive exceptionally favourable treatment namely a 33 1/3 % donations tax credit on any gift (up to a limit of total net taxable income for all gifts combined in a given tax year).

United States

For United States resident taxpayers, a gift to the Friends of The University of Auckland (a 501 (c) 3 supporting organisation) qualifies the donor for the normal tax deductions associated with a gift to a charity in the United States.

United Kingdom

For United Kingdom resident taxpayers, a gift to the UK Friends of The University of Auckland (a UK-registered charity) qualifies the charity to claim Gift Aid from the Inland Revenue for every pound given. Residents in higher tax brackets may claim additional benefits related to their gift on their tax returns.

For Canadian resident taxpayers, a gift to The University of Auckland (a prescribed university listed on Schedule VIII of the Canadian Income Tax Act) qualifies the donor for the normal tax deductions associated with a gift to a charity in Canada.
