Donating shares

Shares might have been left to you by a relative or given to you following a company privatisation or takeover.  Why not consider donating them to us?

High value shares – There are generous tax incentives for individuals and companies that donate shares to charity, including income tax (or corporation tax) relief on the value of most shares and securities donated and exemption from capital gains tax. For more information please refer to the HMRC advice

Low value shares – Many people own tiny share holdings that are uneconomic to sell. The charity ShareGift will collect these shares, and donate the proceeds of the sale to The Silver Line. Click here to find out more.  Please reference The Silver Line when you are making your donation.
