If you have shares which are uneconomic to sell, you may wish to consider donating them to ShareGift, the share donation charity.

ShareGift is an independent UK registered charity (No. 1052686) which specialises in releasing the money locked up in small shareholdings, but which can accept donations of any size. ShareGift works by collecting together small lots of shares until there are enough to sell and then donating the resulting proceeds to a wide range of charities, including the British Paralympic Association. ShareGift has already made grants of over £20,000 to British Paralympic Association and you can grow this by contacting ShareGift and suggesting us as a beneficiary.

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 gives rise to neither a gain nor a loss for Capital Gains Tax (CGT) purposes.
