You can use shares for charitable purposes by supporting students and projects

A gift of stocks or shares is one of the most tax-efficient ways to give to charity. Your donation is free from Capital Gains Tax, and you can get income tax relief on the full market value – there’s no maximum limit.

 

Suppose, for example, that you donate £1,000 worth of shares. If you pay tax at 40%, you’ll get £400 deducted from your next tax bill – so it will only cost you £600 to give us £1,000. Similarly, if you pay 20% tax, you’ll be able to claim tax relief of £200.
