Supporting the RAI

RAI students

The generosity of supporters who value the Institute’s world-class research and teaching on the United States makes possible all that we do.

Gifts to the RAI allow future generations of scholars, students and members of the public to better understand the United States, its history, its politics, and its culture.

You can become a Friend of the RAI from £40 annually to support the RAI and its mission.

How to give

In the UK and the rest of Europe, give online or by cheque by printing off a giving form.

In the United States, give online through Americans for Oxford (501(c) 3), expressing a wish to support the RAI, or by cheque by printing off a giving form.

UK residents can maximise gifts by filling out a Gift Aid declaration. For every £1 a UK tax payer donates, 25p in reclaimed tax is added. A £100 gift with Gift Aid is therefore worth £125.

Americans for Oxford, Inc (AFO), is the University’s charitable organisation in North America, and accepts gifts in support of the RAI. It has been determined by the U.S. Internal Revenue Service to be a 501(c) (3) tax-exempt organisation. Gifts to AFO qualify for an income tax deduction to the full extent allowed by law.
