Gifts of shares

Share giving is the most generous tax relief available to benefactors, combining relief on income and capital gains tax. In the UK, share gifts qualify for tax relief equal to the market value of the shares on the day the gift is made, including associated costs such as broker fees. The tax relief can be claimed for the year in which the gift is made.

Gift Aid donations
If you are a UK Tax-payer, you can Gift Aid your donation and Green Templeton College will receive an additional 25p for every pound donated. If you are a higher rate tax payer, you can also reclaim tax on your donation.

Matched funding
Many companies match the charitable donations of their employees, so please ask your employer if such a scheme is offered in your workplace. It could double the impact of your gift.
