The 1557 Club

The Fitzwygram Foundation has one simple but transformative aim: to increase the number of Free Places available at Hampton School.

Our challenge is significant but we believe it is one that will inspire Hamptonians and the School’s friends and supporters. We welcome support from all and are relying on the generosity of smaller regular giving, as well as major donations, as we aim to increase the number of Free Places at Hampton School. One way that you can make a meaningful contribution is by giving a regular gift over a period of time.

The School was founded in 1557, endowed by a bequest in Robert Hammond’s Will. To reflect this, benefactors might wish to donate £15.57 per month or £1,557 per annum.

By donating tax effectively, the net cost to you, the donor, will be reduced considerably. An illustration of the net cost and impact of giving follows:

 

The cost and impact of gifts of £15.57 per month

Gift Amount Gift Aid Value to FF
Monthly £15.57 £3.89 £19.46
Annual £186.84 £46.71 £233.55
If 40% taxpayer £140.13 monthly cost to donor is £11.68
If 45% taxpayer £128.45 monthly cost to donor is £10.70

86 donors of £15.57 a month would support one Fitzwygram Scholarship at Hampton School.
