Although unwanted small shareholdings are the main focus of our work, ShareGift can also assist if you wish to make a larger donation of shares. You may find ShareGift helpful if:
- you find that your chosen charity can’t handle
your shares itself
- you want more than one charity to benefit from the same holding
- you have a complicated share transaction and need help
- you prefer to stay anonymous
ShareGift is a registered charity and cannot act as an agent or direct conduit for any donation; ShareGift’s Trustees decide on our donations and are not able to accept specific instructions. However, as our donations are based on suggestions of charities by share donors, our Trustees have the discretion to take note of a specific wish and to choose to carry it out.

In practical terms, this means that once we realise the value of shares that you donate to ShareGift, we can make an appropriately-sized donation to the charity or charities you have suggested to us. This may often form part of a larger donation to the same charity, which may have been suggested to us by others. If you would like to see a copy of the charity’s acknowledgement to ShareGift please let us know. If you would like to discuss a proposed donation in more detail please do contact us and we will be happy to advise you.
