Donate Shares

Donate shares to Longfield Hospice

If you have small quantities of unwanted shares, you may be able to help Longfield Hospice care for patients with life-limiting conditions, while enabling their families and carers to live the best life possible, by donating through ShareGift.

Smaller number of shares can often be more trouble than they are worth. Selling them can cost as much as, or more than, the value of the shares themselves, especially with tax implications considered. That’s where ShareGift comes in.

How does it work?

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.

ShareGift make their grants based on research and suggestions from donors. You can help support Longfield by donating any small shareholdings you may have to ShareGift, and mentioning you support us. ShareGift has already made grants of £1,250 to Longfield in the past.

Did you know? If you’re a UK taxpayer, you can claim tax relief on the value of most stocks and securities when you donate them to a charity. Additionally, donating shares charitably gives rise to neither a gain nor a loss for Capital Gains Tax purposes. ShareGift makes no charge, either to you or Longfield Hospice for transferring shares.
