Make your money go even further with Gift Aid.

If you are a UK tax payer, Harper Adams University can claim back the tax you have already paid on your gift from the Inland Revenue through the Gift Aid programme. By claiming Gift Aid, Harper Adams will receive an extra 25 pence from HM Revenue and Customs for every pound you give.

Here's how your donation could be worth more to the University at no extra cost to you:

Your gift to Harper AdamsYour gift plus tax claimed through Gift Aid if you are a BASIC or HIGHER RATE tax payer*Amount that you can claim in your self assessment tax return as a HIGHER RATE tax payer**Actual cost of donation to a HIGHER RATE tax payer, after claiming tax relief

You can make a written declaration of your intention for Harper Adams to treat all donations as tax efficient gifts. The best way of doing this is by signing the Gift Aid declaration on your donation or by completing and sending us a Gift Aid declaration form.

You may cancel your declaration at any time by notifying the Development. Trust

To qualify for Gift Aid, what you pay in UK Income and Capital Gains Taxes in the tax year must at least equal the amount that Harper Adams University will claim against your gift in the tax year.

** If you pay tax at the higher rate you can claim tax relief in your Self Assessment tax return

Your generous donation will go to the University's Development Trust. The Development Trust was created with the goal of supporting the work of the University by improving student learning, facilities and by providing an endowment to pay for scholarships for students less able, because of their financial or personal circumstances, to pursue a course in higher education.

Harper Adams is the UK's largest higher education institution specialising in the sustainable development of the rural economy and rural communities. The University has 2000 undergraduate and postgraduate students taking courses in all aspects of rural life, including agriculture, the management of the food chain, the management of the countryside, the development of rural businesses, the protection of environmental and natural resources, rural leisure and tourism and the professional training of veterinary nurses and practice managers. The University, based in rural Shropshire, is also a major centre for rural and food chain research and knowledge transfer.

Your donation or bequest will make a lasting difference to the work of this national centre of excellence in rural higher education and to those who wish to pursue a career in the rural or food chain sectors. Whether for scholarships or used towards a capital project, your gift makes a real difference where the need is greatest.

Thank you for your support!
