Do you own shares which you can’t sell because it would cost more than they are worth? If so you can donate them to ShareGift – and you may be able to help support our vital work in the process.
ShareGift (Registered Charity Number 1071038) provides a solution to the problem of unwanted small shareholdings. Even if you have only one or two shares they can help you dispose of them and charitably. They can also help with larger donations of shares.
ShareGift accepts donations of shares, re-registers them into their name, and collects them into holdings that are large enough to sell. They then give the proceeds to a range of UK registered charities. In recent years Beating Bowel Cancer has received several thousand pounds from ShareGift to help us in our vital work.
If you are a UK taxpayer you can claim income tax relief on the value of the shares you donate to charity. In addition, donating shares to charity gives rise to neither a gain nor a loss for Capital Gains Tax purposes.
If you have shares that you would like to donate please complete the donation form and send with your share certificate(s) to ShareGift, who will send you the relevant transfer form to sign and return to them.
When donating your shares, please remember to mention that you are a supporter of Beating Bowel Cancer. ShareGift uses this information when choosing charities to support.

What is payroll giving?
Payroll Giving is a flexible scheme which allows anyone who pays UK income tax to give regularly and on a tax free basis directly from their salary to the charities and good causes of their choice
How does it work?
Payroll Giving donations are deducted from your salary before tax by your employer. Each £1.00 you give will only cost you 80p, and if you’re a higher rate tax payer it will only cost you 60p. Your employer then pays these donations to a payroll giving agency approved by HM Revenue & Customs who then distributes the money to Beating Bowel Cancer.
How do I set it up?
If your employer operates a Payroll Giving scheme then you can choose to support Beating Bowel Cancer with a regular donation direct from your pay. If they don’t currently operate a scheme why not suggest that they start one? It’s easy and inexpensive to run. They can find out more by visiting HM Revenue & Customs.
What do you do with all that small change you accumulate every day? Do you have a place at work, or at home, where a small collection box would attract some pennies? Our bright red cardboard box folds flat so we can easily post it to you, and when you have filled it, just count the contents, and send us a cheque for the total.
Please call us on 08450 719300 or email us if you’d like one to order one.
