The RCA is an exempt charity under the terms of its Royal Charter, so companies and individuals who pay UK tax can claim tax relief on their gifts to the RCA. The College has charitable status, though it is exempt from the requirement to register as a charity with the Charity Commission and therefore does not have a charity reference number.
If you are a UK resident, don't forget to maximise your gift by filling out our Gift Aid declaration when you make your gift.
Higher Rate Taxpayers
Higher rate taxpayers can also reclaim additional tax relief on their gift. Please contact [email protected] if you would like more information.
Gifts from our US donors are received by Royal College of Art USA (RCA USA). RCA USA is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organisation (recognised by the U.S. Internal Revenue Service) which seeks gifts to benefit the College. In compliance with IRS regulations, the Board of Directors of RCA USA maintains complete discretion over allocation of the gifts it receives. Gifts to RCA USA qualify for an income tax deduction to the full extent allowed by law.
The RCA is thrilled to have a base of alumni and supporters all around the world. When we receive your donation, we will ensure that you are sent a receipt for tax purposes in your country of residence.
