International Giving

Alumni and friends in the UK, Hong Kong, and certain European countries can make tax-effective contributions to support the School.

Columbia University Hong Kong Fund

The Columbia Hong Kong Fund is registered under Section 88 of the Inland Revenue Ordinance. Hong Kong residents who make their gifts to this fund can deduct the donated amount from their total income. Please consult the Inland Revenue Department website for more information about the tax benefits.

You may make gifts through a wire transfer of cash. For transfer details, please contact Elymar Kolev by email at [email protected] or by phone at (212) 851-4303.

Columbia University UK Fund

Residents of the UK can donate to any Columbia school or program through the Columbia UK Fund, a UK charity, to gain tax benefit. Those who pay both UK and US income taxes benefit as well: the same gift is treated as a charitable donation for US tax purposes and can be claimed as a deduction against US income.

Applying for Gift Aid relief is easy. Simply fill out a Gift Aid Declaration Form once you make your gift to the Columbia UK Fund.

Transnational Giving Europe

Columbia University has partnered with Transnational Giving Europe (TGE) to allow residents of several European countries to make tax-effective contributions to any part of the University. The process is very simple: you make your gift to the TGE foundation partner in your country of residence. The foundation provides you with all the fiscal advantages, including a tax receipt. Your gift is then transferred to the Columbia UK Fund. See if your country is a TGE partner.
