Whom do we Serve?
British Commonwealth educational, scientific and literary institutions.
 
What benefits do we offer?
Grants paid in Sterling, at 100% of the amounts contributed by donors, who then qualify for U.S. tax deductions. No fees or other charges.
 
How is this possible?
BSUF is a nonprofit, tax-exempt foundation with no full-time staff or office overhead, managed by volunteers who serve without compensation of any kind.  Its operating expenses and scholarship awards are supported by  income from investment of its own funds, by member dues and by contributions from friends.
 
Why we serve
Our primary mission is to promote active support of the fundraising efforts of British Commonwealth schools and universities by their U.S. alumni/ae and friends.  We also underwrite the cost of one or more British Marshall and Fulbright Scholarships annually, fulfilling our founders’ commitment to support the work of U.K. Scholars studying in the U.S. and U.S. scholars studying in the U.K.
 
What happens when BSUF gets a donation?
If the donor expresses a preference for an institution we support we notify that institution of the donation amount and the donor's contact information by e-mail, the same day we receive the donation.
 
When does BSUF make grants?
The Directors approve grants to make at  each of the five Board Meetings held during the year, and notice of each grant is e-mailed to the recipient institution followed by a check in Sterling.
