If you reside in one of the countries listed below, you can make a gift to Penn and benefit from the tax advantages provided in your country.

Transnational Giving Europe (TGE) enables donors in these participating countries to facilitate gifts to The University of Pennsylvania (USA) Foundation Ltd., our registered charity in the United Kingdom.

After making a gift to the TGE national foundation partner in your country, that foundation establishes contact with Penn’s UK Foundation for an assessment. Pending mutual approval by the partner foundations involved, your gift would then be transferred to our UK charitable foundation for the ultimate benefit of the university. A small fee is involved with the processing and transfer of your gift.
