Make a Gift

Pembroke is a registered charity (no. 1137492) and there are a number of ways you can make a gift in support of the College.


Regular Giving

You can set up a regular donation in annual, quarterly or monthly installments for an agreed number of years via a direct debit.

Single Gifts

If you would rather make a one off gift you can do so either by credit or debit card or by setting up a single direct debit. please note that it is cheaper for the College to process single direct debit gifts than credit or debit card transactions.

Give As You Earn (GAYE) and Payroll Giving - for UK donors

Give As You Earn (GAYE) and Payroll Giving allow you to make a tax-free donation to Pembroke directly from your UK salary or pension. Payments are normally of a set amount, made monthly, but it is also possible to make one-off payments. Your employer may also match your donation, which could as much as double its value to Pembroke. In order to set up a gift via Payroll Giving, you need to contact your HR or Charity Department. They will ask you to complete a form which requires your employer to make a deduction from either your salary or pension. Please also keep the College informed of your wishes if you do not wish for your gift to remain anonymous. Please find further information on the webpages here.

All gifts will be acknowledged with a thank you letter and a Direct Debit gift will also be confirmed by an advance notification letter which will act as a record of your gift.
