There are various ways in which you can make a donation to the Foundation, whatever its size, your gift is important to us and the cumulative effect can be astonishing.
If you would like to make a regular gift you can set up a Direct Debit by completing a donation form. Regular donations over a number of consecutive years can be paid monthly, quarterly or annually and are extremely important to the work of the Foundation, as they provide a predictable income which allows for better planning
If you would like to make a donation by Cheque or Bank Transfer please complete a donation form, ensuring you complete the Gift Aid details which will increase the value of your donation. Forms should be returned to the Foundation Office at Lancing College. Donation Form
If you would prefer to make your donation online you can make a single donation with a debit or credit card through PayPal. If you chose to make a donation in this way, it would help us if you would also complete a donation form, and return it to the Foundation Office at Lancing College.
With any cash donation we would encourage UK taxpayers to use the Gift Aid scheme at no extra cost. Tax-efficient giving makes your donation go further by allowing the recovery of tax already paid by you to HMRC. If you are a UK taxpayer, the Lancing Foundation receives an additional £25 for every £100 you give. If you pay income tax at the higher rate, you must include all your Gift Aid donations on your Self Assessment tax return, if you want to receive the additional tax relief due to you.

In accordance with charity regulations, where a preference has been indicated, and in the unlikely event that a gift for that purpose becomes surplus or unusable, the Head Master will apply the proceeds for the general purposes of the school. You can read our Donations Policy here.
