Step 1
DESIGNATE A US REPRESENTATIVE

Before you begin an application to become an approved BSUF institution, you must have a representative in the US that can help you mobilize support for your appeal. 

STEP 2
APPLY FOR BSUF APPROVAL FOR YOUR INSTUTITION

Institutions are required to submit an application to BSUF that describes your institution and the purpose of your fundraising initiatives. 


STEP 3
PREPARE FUNDRAISING LANGUAGE

First: is it important that BSUF's role in your fundraising is accurately described. Please use the language to the right in your communications. 

Second: please email us your draft solicitation letters for a quick review, and so that we may be certain that donors will be correctly informed about BSUF.

Finally: BSUF is happy to provide additional materials that you might find helpful. Please contact us to receive any of the following:

  • Copies of a BSUF overview pamphlet

  • Copies of BSUF's Annual Report

  • Solicitation envelopes

- Required language for mailings -
To make a gift and take a U.S. income tax deduction, you may make a donation to the British Schools & Universities Foundation (Federal Tax ID 13-616-1189), a charitable organization approved by the U.S. Internal Revenue Service under code Section 501(c)(3). Write your check to the order of the British Schools & Universities Foundation.
You should express a preference for {{the institution}} in your transmittal letter, not on your check. Such preferences are respected by the Foundation but all grants are made at its sole discretion, as required by the IRS.

STEP 4
prepare your donor transmittal form

All donors will need to include a donor transmittal form (or something similar) to ensure that all necessary information is received from the donor. Your donors can make donations in two ways:

  1. Donors can donate directly to BSUF by check or credit card. Learn more about donating directly to BSUF. 
  2. Donors can mail a check (payable to BSUF) to you. If you prefer to collect checks directly so that you can track donations, you should forward all checks to BSUF at least monthly.
 

STEP 5
FUNDRAISE!

If you receive checks directly, please forward checks to BSUF at least monthly.
