Tax efficient gifts from outside the UK

If you are a resident of the USA and would like to make a donation to Hughes Hall, please direct your gift (for maximum tax efficiency) via Cambridge in America. Please indicate that you would like your gift to be allocated to Hughes Hall.

Gifts from members in Canada

In order for a charitable gift to be tax-deductible in Canada, it must be to a 'prescribed university outside Canada'. The University of Cambridge is prescribed for this purpose in the Canadian tax code.  We will forward on a receipt acceptable to the Canadian tax authorities which is prepared by the University. 

Gifts from Hong Kong Members

For the benefit of our valued alumni in Hong Kong, we have set up the Hughes Hall Hong Kong Limited account, making processing of donations faster and more efficient. This ensures that we are now able to accept donations in a tax efficient manner from our Hong Kong alumni and friends by direct electronic transfer. To assist the Development Office with donation processing, and to ensure that receipts acceptable to the revenue authorities in Hong Kong can be issued for all donations, we kindly ask that we be notified of any donations made to the account by sending a brief notification email to:
