How to give

Gift in kind

At City, University of London there are many opportunities as a corporation or individual to give a gift in kind.

Thomson Reuters sponsor a room and an area on the second floor of Cass Business School. Through this sponsorship our students gain experience from invaluable products.


Regular donations help us plan ahead and maintain the support that we offer to students.  We are also able to make sure that some of the vital projects and research that we undertake can be completed.  You can set up a monthly or annual gift by direct debit by clicking on this secure link.  Remember that you are completely protected by the direct debit guarantee, and your donation is not a contract.  You are in complete control and can stop your direct debit whenever you wish.

Single gift

You can make a single gift using a credit or debit card or by sending in a cheque.  Use this secure link to donate with your credit or debit card, or if you would like to send in a cheque, please make it payable to City, University of London Development Fund, and address it to:

Payroll giving

If you are an employee at City, University of London, Payroll Giving is a tax-effective way for you to give.

City’s Payroll Giving scheme allows you to make donations direct from your salary before tax: for example, a £10 per month donation to the City Future Fund will cost you only £8 per month (£6 for higher rate taxpayers).

It’s the most efficient way for City staff to support students’ living expenses, research and wellbeing via the City Future Fund.

Payroll Giving is a valuable and long-term source of donations for City, helping the Future Fund budget and plan ahead more effectively.

International giving

US giving

In 2005, supporters of City, University of London in the US set up Friends of City, a US non-profit organisation, tax exempt under section 501(c)3 of the US Internal Revenue Code to give back to City.

Friends of City is governed by an independent board of directors and gifts to the US Friends of City are deductible to the extent allowed by law. A tax receipt in a form acceptable to the Internal Revenue Service will be issued for every gift and donation received.

If you would like to support the invaluable work of the institution and support the next generation of students by making a donation to Friends of City, or learn more about the organisation, please visit our website or contact the Development Office.
