ShareGift

Share Gift logo

If you have small quantities of unwanted shares, you may be able to help SCIE improve lives through ShareGift.

Often, smaller number of shares can be more hassle than they are worth. Selling them can cost as much as, or more than, the value of the shares themselves. There are also tax implications, as income from shares, no matter how small, must be declared.

ShareGift (registered charity number 1052868) is a charity which specialises in collecting small shareholdings which are uneconomical to sell on their own, and sells them for the benefit of different UK registered charities.

Without ShareGift, the value tied up in these shareholdings would remain difficult to access. However, thanks to their innovative approach, hundreds of charities, including SCIE, can benefit.

ShareGift makes no charge, either to you or SCIE, for transferring shares, and donors can benefit from tax relief on the value of their shares on donation. Shares donated to charity are not liable for Capital Gains Tax, either in calculating a gain or a loss.

If you would like to find out more, please visit www.sharegift.org and don’t forget to mention SCIE if you decide to donate your shares. Thank you.

Leave a legacy

Please consider supporting the vital work of the Social Care Institute for Excellence by leaving a legacy in your will. A gift in your will can make a real difference.

We strongly recommend that you ask a solicitor to help you draw up your will. The right legal advice can ensure that your will is accurate and valid. You will have peace of mind knowing that your family and friends, and any charities you care about, will be provided for according to your wishes.

If you would like to leave a legacy gift to SCIE, please get in touch with our fundraising team.
