Donating shares to Reaching the Unreached is one of the most tax-effective ways you can give. If you are not reliant on dividend payments, why not put them to good use where they can make a difference and provide regular support to help towards the costs of running our Children's Villages and schools? 

You won't have to pay any capital gains tax on the shares you donate and you can also claim income tax relief.

  • If you are a higher rate (40%) taxpayer you will be able to claim income tax relief equal to 40% of the value of the gift.
  • If you are a highest rate (45%) taxpayer you will be able to claim income tax relief equal to 45% of the value of the gift.

In order to qualify for the tax relief, the shares or securities must be: 

  • listed or dealt on a recognised UK or foreign stock exchange
  • units in authorised unit trusts
  • shares in a UK open-ended investment company
  • holdings in certain foreign collective investment schemes.

If you would like to donate shares worth more than £500, please contact us with details of your intended gift. You can easily transfer the shares into Reaching the Unreached's name so that the dividend payments can be used to fund our programmes and we can adivse you how to do this. 

Alternatively, if you would like to make a donation of shares worth under £500, you can use the ShareGift service. ShareGift is a service specialising in accepting smaller share donations for any registered charity. They can be contacted on 020 7930 3737 or through the ShareGift website.  ShareGift will accept nil value shares as long as they are transferrable.
