Thank you for considering giving a gift of shares to Framework. Donating shares is one of the most tax-effective ways to support our mission to end homelessness. We are always delighted to receive gifts of shares.
The benefits of giving a gift of shares
Giving HMRC qualifying shares enables you to claim Income Tax relief on the value of the shares and exemption from Capital Gains Tax:
- If you are a higher rate (40%) taxpayer you can claim Income Tax relief equal to 40% of the value of the gift, so a donation of shares worth £25,000 to Framework could save you up to £10,000 on your annual tax bill.
- If you are a highest rate (45%) taxpayer you can claim Income Tax relief equal to 45% of the value of the gift.
How to donate a gift of shares to Framework
You can either sell the shares yourself and then donate the proceeds to Framework, or donate the shares directly to us. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call us during office hours on 0115 970 9558 and we will be happy to help.
Naming opportunities are available
If you give a gift of £50,000 or more we will be delighted to discuss the opportunity to name a Framework building or development.
