Anglo-American Charity Limited
Charities Aid Foundation

Two London-based expats founded the Anglo-American Charity Limited in 2003 to facilitate trans-Atlantic gifting for Americans living in the United Kingdom. In the last 16 years, the Anglo-American charity has facilitated gifts totalling over $25 million for more than 250 UK and US charities. The Anglo-American Charity is most useful for individuals who pay taxes in both the UK and the US. The UK is generous in its tax treatment of qualified charitable gifts which allows the charity and often the donor to get a tax rebate. A donor also qualifies for an itemized deduction on his US return. The minimum gift is $1,000/£750.
