Bishop Grosseteste University (BGU) has, since its inception, been an unincorporated association, regulated by the Charities Commission (in addition to the University-specific regulation from government agencies, notably the Higher Education Funding Council, to which the University is subject). The Lincoln Diocesan Trust is a custodian trustee and the University Council members are the managing trustees of BGU.
The University has no linked charities and its charitable objectives are to provide the services of education/training young people and the general public.
Unincorporated charities benefit from the same tax advantages as all charities, and have the same obligations to comply with tax law.
