Other European Countries
If you are a European taxpayer you may give to UC Berkeley through Transnational Giving Europe (TGE), which currently covers 21 countries and enables donors, both corporations and individuals, resident in one of the participating countries, to make donations to non-profit organizations in other Member States, while benefiting directly from the tax advantages provided for in the legislation of their country of residence.
Donors may make a gift to their respective national TGE partner which will transfer donations to the University of California Trust (U.K.), which will then forward the funds to UC Berkeley.
