Gift Aid
If you are a UK tax-payer please remember to sign the Gift Aid declaration – this will increase your subscription and any donations by 25% at no extra cost to you.

Non-UK Friends
Friends membership is open to everyone, regardless of where you live. Subscriptions and donations are shown in £ sterling on our membership form and online payments page, but will be debited from your bank account in your own currency, according to the exchange rate at the time of your transaction. We do not charge a conversion fee, but some banks do, so you may wish to check first.

Overseas friends can also make subscriptions and donations by international bankers draft.

US friends wishing to claim tax deductions on donations can do so via the Clan Campbell Education Foundation. Please contact us in the first instance and we will put you in touch with the Treasurer.
