Gift of Shares or Property

Shares

You can claim tax relief equal to the market value of the shares on the day you make the gift, together with any associated costs such as brokers’ fees. The relief is against your income tax for the year. For example if you give Christ’s Hospital £1,000 worth of shares, and you are a higher rate taxpayer, you will pay £400 less in income tax that year.

Additionally, you will not have to pay any Capital Gains Tax (CGT) on any increase in the value of the shares since you bought them. This could mean a further saving. If shares you donate have gone down in value, you should be aware that you will not be able to use this loss to offset any other CGT liability you have.

However, as Christ’s Hospital is unable to give you financial advice we would urge you to talk to your financial advisor about the tax implications of donating shares.

Further guidance notes relating to the donation of shares are available from the Development Office:

Property

You can donate property to Christ's Hospital School, such as land, buildings, or other objects.

Tax relief can be claimed through donations of property when no interest in the property is retained. This can be through:

  • Income tax relief on the value of the donated property.

  • Exemption from capital gains tax on the increase in value of the donated property since first acquired, and reduced capital gains tax when property is sold at less than market value.

  • Exemption from inheritance tax.

Christ’s Hospital is unable to give you financial advice and we would urge you to talk to your financial advisor about the tax implications of donating property.

Over £10,800 raised on #GivingTuesday – Thank you!


Christ’s Hospital thanks everyone who made a gift to the Blue Fund on 29 November for #GivingTuesday. Nearly one hundred donors made a donation, raising over £10,800!  This far exceeds our target of £5000 and we are enormously grateful for the generous support of parents, Old Blues, staff and other friends of Christ’s Hospital who made this possible.

This was the first year the Christ’s Hospital has taken part in #GivingTuesday, a worldwide initiative supported by the Charities Aid Foundation, to encourage support for UK charities. This resounding success has helped put us one step closer towards our £190,000 Blue Fund target of funding another pupil’s seven year education and boarding at Christ’s Hospital.
To find out more information or to make a gift to the Blue Fund, please visit the Blue Fund website at: bluefund.christs-hospital.org.uk or contact the Development Office on +44 (0)1403 247519.
