Legacies

Christ Church has charitable status and so receives bequests free of Inheritance Tax. Bequests for which no particular purposes are nominated will be credited to the Legacy Fund from which the Governing Body will make allocations according to need. You may wish to indicate in general terms where you would like your bequest used. 
You may like to consider leaving a legacy to Christ Church in one of the following ways:

•    A pecuniary gift specifying an amount of money that you will leave to Christ Church;
•    A legacy of a specific asset or gift in kind
•    A residuary legacy leaving your estate to Christ Church after other legacies, any debts, Inheritance Tax and expenses have been paid
•    A reversionary legacy bequeathing your estate to other beneficiaries and then to Christ Church after your death

Should you find yourself a beneficiary under a will, you may wish to consider transferring the whole or part of your inheritance to Christ Church using a deed of variation. Amounts thus transferred become free of any Inheritance Tax otherwise due.
It is very helpful for Christ Church to know that you have made us a beneficiary in your will. We invite you to become members of the 1546 Society which recognises those who have informed us of their plans to leave a bequest to the House. Please contact the Development Office, development.office@chch.ox.ac.uk, if you would like to discuss a planned bequest.

From the USA

Members and friends of Christ Church can now give regular gifts by credit card through Americans for Oxford. Gifts to AFO qualify for an income tax deduction to the full extent allowed by law. To find out more please contact Aileen Thomson, Development Executive. 

Members and friends of Christ Church who are tax payers in the United States can also make tax-effective gifts by directing them through the American Friends of Christ Church, Inc. Please visit their website to give online, or return our USA donation form to

Mr Peter S Paine Jr, President,
American Friends of Christ Church, Inc., 
3900 NY State Rt 22,
Willsboro NY 12996

From Canada

Canadian Tax Payers can donate online via the University of Oxford and request a Canadian Tax Receipt.

You may also send a donation form via email to development.office@chch.ox.ac.uk or via post to the Development and Alumni Office, Christ Church, Oxford OX1 1DP, United Kingdom. This will then be passed to the University of Oxford Development Office so that you may receive a receipt compliant with Canadian Tax legislation. 

Cheques should be made payable to The University of Oxford Development Trust. Credit card donations will be processed at the University Development Office.

From Europe

Christ Church is a member of Transnational Giving Europe (TGE). If you are resident in one of TGE’s partner countries, you can give to Christ Church and benefit from the tax advantages of your own country. 

From the Rest of the World

If you are resident outside the UK or US, Christ Church is able to accept gifts by cheque in your own currency, or by international money order in pounds sterling. Donations should be made payable to ‘Christ Church, Oxford’ and should be sent via email to development.office@chch.ox.ac.uk or via post to the Development and Alumni Office, Christ Church, Oxford OX1 1DP, United Kingdom.
