Donating Property, Shares and Valuables
If you would like to leave property, shares or valuables to SCCCC for us to raise funds, we strongly recommend that you seek professional advice from a qualified advisor.
Donating shares to SCCCC is one of the most tax-effective ways you can give, as the shares you donate are exempt from capital gains tax. You are also entitled to claim income tax relief too, but only on publicly quoted shares (including those listed on the London Stock Exchange or Alternative Investment Market Shares (AIM).
If you pay income tax at 20%, your income tax bill would be reduced by 20% of the value of the gift.*
If you pay income tax at 40%, your income tax bill would be reduced by 40% of the value of the gift.*
If you pay income tax at 50% your income tax bill would be reduced by 50% of the value of the gift.*
*Other influencing factors/tax liabilities may alter these figures.
How can I donate my shares to SCCCC?
If you decide to donate some shares to SCCCC, the first step that you should take is to let us know about your intention to do so. This will enable us to make the necessary arrangements for your gift and help the transferral go as smoothly as possible.

We are also happy to receive gifts of property and valuables which can be sold to support our work with older people. If this is something you are interested in doing please do not hesitate to get in touch with our fundraiser Ericka Hill on 0114 250 5293 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
