Donating shares

Donating your shares is a simple way to help us create a better future for seriously ill children.

It's also one of the most tax-effective ways to give money. If you are a UK taxpayer, you can claim income tax relief on the value of most stocks and securities when you donate them to a charity. In addition, donating shares charitably does not give rise to either a gain or a loss for Capital Gains Tax purposes.

GOSH Charity work with ShareGift who specialise in accepting small shareholdings that would cost more to sell than they are worth, generating substantial funding for charities. However, they can also accept donations of any size and do not charge a fee to either GOSH Charity or the donor.
