Smart global giving


Tax-effective giving for dual UK and US taxpayers.

Contact us


If you are an individual paying tax in the UK and US and you're looking for a smart, tax-effective way to achieve greater impact with your philanthropy, we can help.

Through our CAF American Donor Fund* you can:

  • Claim UK tax relief (at 40% or 45% rates of tax) and get a tax deduction in the US.
  • Claim Gift Aid in the UK, increasing the value of your donation by 25%.
  • Make gifts from the Fund to charitable organisations around the world.**
  • Distribute your money by making single or regular donations to the Fund, or by opening a Donor Advised Account (£5,000 minimum) or a Donor Advised Trust (£100,000 minimum) which allows donations to charities from the income and capital of an invested fund.

This Fund is specifically set up to meet the needs of those who pay tax in both the UK and US. Download the CAF American Donor Fund guide, current fees and Terms and conditions.
