Colby is now a UK-registered charity and has partnered with UK Fund for Charities to make giving easier for our alumni, parents, and friends living in the United Kingdom.

Make your gift to Colby today through UK Fund for Charities and take advantage of the government-sponsored Gift Aid program. You can increase your gift by 25 percent without incurring any additional out-of-pocket expenditure.

Is my gift eligible?

You are eligible if you pay UK tax at the basic rate and you make a gift by check, credit card, or wire transfer. Gifts of stock do not qualify for Gift Aid, nor do gifts received from a corporate entity, foundation, or payroll deduction. However Colby can accept such gifts directly at alumni.colby.edu/give.
