NMITE Professor and students

Donate Now

NMITE is built on the generosity of individuals who have chosen to give their money, their time and their experience to help see the NMITE dream become a reality. The Founders of NMITE set out to design an institution that will transform forever how engineering is taught, and our Pioneer Fund donors and Institutional Partners have built on the foundations they laid. 

These intrepid supporters took a gamble. What NMITE proposed was something totally different and challengingly disruptive – and back then, we didn’t know if it could happen.

But thanks to them, it did. Now it’s your turn to make a difference. You can help us identify and support a generation of new engineers by making a donation to NMITE today. 

Whether you want to become a member of the Ignition family by setting up a regular donation, make a one-off contribution, or include NMITE in your Will, every penny of your gift will help NMITE’s budding engineers get the learning experience of a lifetime.

We can’t wait to welcome you on board.

Tax Efficient Giving: Make your gift go further with Gift Aid

If you are a UK taxpayer, your gift can be boosted by 25% through Gift Aid. This means that NMITE can claim 25p from HMRC for every £1 you give – at no extra cost to you. 

If you pay tax above the basic rate, you may get tax relief on the difference between the basic tax rate and the higher tax rate on the gross value of your gift (i.e., the value of your gift plus Gift Aid). 

For a £100 gift:

Your tax band We claim from HMRC Your tax relief Total cost to you Total gift value to NMITE
20% (Basic) £25 £0 £100 £125
40% £25 20% £80 £125
45% £25 25% £75 £125

If your gift is large enough to reduce your taxable income to below the 45 per cent threshold, then some of the gift will attract relief at 25% and some at 20%.
