How does ShareGift work?

If you have small quantities of unwanted shares, you may be able to support Meningitis Now’s vital work through ShareGift, a charity dedicated to accepting share donations.

You can support Meningitis Now by donating any size of shareholdings you may have to ShareGift and mentioning that you support us. ShareGift has already donated £23,500 to Meningitis Now, helping our team to continue providing emotional, practical and financial support to everyone in the UK who has been affected by meningitis.

What are the benefits of ShareGift?

There are three key benefits for donors:

  1. You can claim income tax relief.
  2. 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.
  3. If you are the highest rate (45%) taxpayer, you will be able to claim income tax relief equal to 45% of the value of the gift.

Please note that donating shares charitably gives rise to neither a gain nor a loss for Capital Gains Tax (CGT) purposes.
