Tax Receipt

Because SMUS is a non-profit organization, your donations are tax receipt-able. Each eligible donation method has an equivalent tax receipt, including US and UK tax receipts. If you do not receive a tax receipt, please contact us and we will be happy to provide one.

Thank you for choosing to donate to the Annual Appeal. Your contribution will go a long way to ensuring SMUS remains a world-class school and continues to provide an exceptional experience for our students.

There are many ways to donate:

Online donations are quick, easy and secure using a credit card.

By mail for US Residents

American Friends of St. Michaels University School is a US non-profit corporation and qualifies as a charity under US tax law. You can therefore receive a US income tax receipt for your gift so long as it is in accordance with US tax law.

By mail for UK Residents

As a resident of the United Kingdom, you have the option of directing your gift through the local Charities Aid Foundation in the UK. In so doing, you maximize your gift to us by allowing CAF to reclaim the tax, which in turn increases the gift amount that SMUS receives on your behalf.

  2. Download and complete your SMUS Annual Appeal donor form, indicating the area(s) you wish to support.
  3. Prepare your gift cheque or money order made payable to: CAF- St. Michaels University School UK Fund.
