How it works

Gifts made to Stewardship America are tax effective in the UK and the USA. They qualify for UK Gift Aid, increasing the value of any gifts made by 25% and also qualify for a deduction from your US taxable income at your marginal rate, where applicable.



Our services



Tax effective

Your giving is eligible both for UK Gift Aid and for a deduction from your US taxable income.




A single place for all your giving in support of churches and charities in the UK, US and around the world.




Fund your account with cash, shares or proceeds from investments.

We’ll process them all for you.



Key features

  • All the administration and accounting requirements are handled by our experienced team of charity professionals. There is no need for trustees or annual returns and no legal costs.
  • Give with full anonymity when sensitivity or discretion is required.
  • The tax certificates we issue will enable you to achieve a deduction from your US taxable income at your marginal rate; we’ll claim Gift Aid in respect of the UK tax you pay.
  • Fund your account with gifts in GBP or USD, allowing you to organise your charitable giving in multiple currencies.



Why Stewardship America? 

  • No set-up fees to establish your account with us, and none of the ongoing accounting and legal costs associated with private foundations.
  • Access to our specialist philanthropy team, offering the guidance you need to make sure your giving is as effective as possible.
  • Just like the churches and charities we support, Stewardship America is a not-for-profit too. It means you can use your Stewardship America Donor Fund in full confidence that we’re not profiting from your generosity. 


Who is it for?

Suitable for those who pay tax in both the US and the UK. Stewardship America offers an effective solution for donors who itemise their deductions for US tax purposes.
