To make a gift to the Financial Aid Scheme (Bursary) in pounds sterling, you are able to donate online via Just Giving. You are also able to provide support in cash, cheque, charity voucher or bank transfer. For cheque or charity voucher, please make them out to ‘QuIET’ or to ‘The Quaker International Educational Trust’ and write “BHS” on the back. Then send it to:

Please contact Mr Hickok on the email below if you wish to donate by cash or for the bank account details in order to make a transfer.
Do you qualify for Gift Aid? If you have paid UK tax on income or capital gains equal to or more than your charitable donations then please notify us if you are happy to add Gift Aid to your donated sum. Gift Aid will add 25% to the value of your gift.
The Bursary Scheme, so far as funds allow, is available to meet or contribute to the fees of established BHS students whose families have suffered financial hardship and who could not otherwise complete their Quaker education. There are often no safety nets for families when illness or injury strikes a parent. For many, the Bursary Scheme is the single lifeline which keeps family life, Quaker school life and a child’s future together. This is especially true in 2021 as families are experiencing great challenges brought on by the social/political unrest, a crippled economy and last year’s Beirut port tragedy and aftermath, and all exacerbated by the Covid-19 pandemic. Your gift will make a real difference.
[QuIET, UK charity number 1072250, is the Quaker body which, with the Board of Governors, is responsible for the stewardship of BHS.]
