Donations from the USA
The Barbican Centre Trust has established the American Friends of the Barbican Fund with NPT-UK, a disregarded entity of a 501(c) (3) in the US.
Donations made to the American Friends of the Barbican Fund through NPT-UK are eligible for tax relief in the US and, if you are also a UK tax payer, in the UK through the Gift Aid scheme.
NPT-UK manages all administration including gift acceptance, gift compliance, accounting and record-keeping on behalf of you, the donor, and us, the Charity.
The minimum contribution to NPT-UK is $3,200 (approx. 2,000 GBP), and is subject to an administrative fee, charged by NPT-UK for handling your donation and forwarding it to the Barbican. Please download the form on the right for more information about making your gift.
We welcome all donors to the American Friends of the Barbican Fund to become Barbican Patrons (unless otherwise discussed) and enjoy a closer relationship with the Barbican.
5% of first $40,000: 1% of donations of $40,000 - $160,000; 0% of donations of $160,000 plus. Fees capped at $3,200 (£2,000).
For donations of less than $3,200 (but greater than $500), you can make your gift via CAFAmerica, which is registered in the US as a 501(c) (3) tax-exempt organisation. CAFAmerica will charge an administrative fee of 8% for handling your donation and forwarding it to the Barbican.
Please note: Donations of less than $500 will be returned to the donor less applicable administrative fees.
