Did you know that a gift of shares can be turned into valuable funds to support Heart of Kent Hospice and, depending on your circumstances, it can also be a very tax efficient way to give?
Selling small parcels of shares is often not worthwhile because of the costs involved, but a charity called ShareGift can help you do something beneficial with them. You can transfer these small shareholdings to ShareGift free of charge and they will realise as much value as possible from them by combining them until they have enough of any one holding to sell. They will then donate the proceeds to charities like Heart of Kent Hospice which have been recommended to them.
ShareGift can also help if you have a larger shareholding worth more than £500 which you would like to give. You would begin by donating the holding to ShareGift, making it clear that you want Heart of Kent Hospice to benefit. ShareGift would then sell the shares as soon as possible at no cost and make a donation to us based on the amount they have made. The donation would be anonymous, but if you tell us about it, we would love to have the opportunity to thank you.
