Overseas giving

With a third of our alumni living outside the UK, we're proud to be a diverse and global community here at King's. Wherever you are in the world, we appreciate your support and can advise you on the best way to donate from overseas. Here you’ll discover how you can make a tax efficient gift if you’re in the USA or Hong Kong.

Donating from the USA

If you’re in the US and decide to give to King’s, the Friends of King’s College London Association Inc. (FoKCLA) will look after your gift.

Gifts from our US donors are received by Friends of King’s College London Association.Inc (FoKCLA) is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization (recognised by the US Internal Revenue Service) which funds grants that benefit King’s College London.

In compliance with IRS regulations, the Board of Directors of Friends of King’s College London Association.Inc maintains complete discretion over the allocation of gifts to King’s. Gifts to FoKCLA qualify for an income-tax deduction to the limits allowed by law.

To donate tax efficiently, you can:

  • Send a cheque – post to Friends of King’s College London Association,1350 Avenue of the Americas, Floor 2, Suite 266, New York, NY 10019.
  • Donate online
  • Make a planned donation – The Friends of KCLA welcome bequests, charitable remainder trusts and matching gifts.

For more information, please contact the alumni office at with the subject line 'US Friends'.

My principal reason for supporting King’s College London is that in this way I can keep offering thanks for and paying tribute to the academic institutions that I knew and love so well during my tenure as Chair there between 1979 and 1988.

Emeritus Professor David Aspin (based in Australia)
