Raise funds for the foundation when you shop online

Help raise funds for the Queen’s College Foundation whenever you shop online.

Use to shop with more than 3,600 top name retailers including Amazon, Argos and Sainsbury’s.

When you make a purchase, you’ll raise a donation for the Foundation, which provides bursaries to help those pupils who would otherwise be unable to make the most of their talents.

Help support us to support them by clicking here.

You can also raise money for the Foundation when you shop online with Amazon, simply visit Amazon Smile (it is a replica of the main site) and elect to support Queen’s College Taunton Foundation as your chosen charity. Click here.


Gifts of shares, securities or other property benefit particularly well from Queen’s College’s charitable status. The value of a gift of shares to Queen’s can be increased considerably through tax relief. Please contact the Development Office if you would like to find out more about making a gift of shares.

Tax Refund Gifts

If you are a UK taxpayer who has to complete a Self Assessment form, you can use your tax return form to donate to Queen’s College all or part of any refund due to you. You can also choose to make your refund a Gift Aid donation.

Payroll Giving

As an alternative to a standing order, you can donate on a regular basis through payroll giving. This is a means of making a gift directly from your salary before income tax is deducted. As a result you will automatically get tax relief at your top rate of tax, with Queen’s College receiving the gross value. Please contact your employer’s own payroll department to find out whether they participate in this scheme.

Matching Gifts

Many employers offer matching gift schemes, whereby they double or even treble donations made by their employees – in other words a gift made to Queen’s College could be increased if an employer was able to contribute the same, or a greater amount. Please contact your employer’s personnel department to see if they operate a matching gift programme.

Gift Aid 

If you are a UK taxpayer, the Inland Revenue Gift Aid scheme enables Queen’s College to reclaim 25p in tax for every £1 it receives in donations. There are no catches to this and it substantially increases the value of donations to the School. Donations at any level are eligible for Gift Aid. Higher-rate taxpayers can also claim an additional amount on their annual tax return. Single and regular donations of any sum are eligible, whether made by cash or cheque.

Anyone who has paid an amount of tax, at least equal to the tax that Queen’s College will reclaim in the tax year that the donation is made, can take part in the Gift Aid scheme. The tax you have paid can be income or capital gains tax at any rate. You can use Gift Aid if you are not a UK resident but you must make your gift out of income or capital gains charged to UK tax.
