More ways...

Give As You Earn (GAYE)

You can make a donation to Swansea University direct from your salary, tax free. The donation is deducted from your pay before it is taxed under PAYE, and you get relief at your highest rate of tax. The gift does not reduce earnings for National Insurance contributions purposes.

Check with your employer to see if they offer this facility.

Overseas giving

United States of America: To make a gift and take a U.S. income tax deduction, you may make a donation to the British Schools & Universities Foundation (Federal I.D. Number 13-616-1189), a charitable organization approved by the U.S. Internal Revenue Service under Section 501(c)(3) of their Code. You should express "a preference for Swansea University " in your transmittal letter, not on your check which is to be drawn to the order of the British Schools & Universities Foundation. Such preferences are respected by the Foundation but all grants are made at its sole discretion, as required by the I.R.S.
