As a donor, you may be eligible for income tax and capital gains tax relief at the applicable rate based on the value of your shares.
How can I donate my shares to MSF?
Donating shares is easier than you might think. Please read on to find out how you can donate shares to Médecins Sans Frontières/Doctors Without Borders (MSF).
For shares valued less than £1,000
For small shareholdings, it can often cost more to move or sell them than their value.
If you would like to donate shares valued at less than £1,000, we recommend that you do this through Sharegift.
Sharegift is an independent, registered UK charity that accepts small shareholdings, arranges to sell them and donates the proceeds to a wide range of charities, including MSF.
To get started, simply visit the Sharegift website, provide the details of the shares you wish to donate and remember to mention ‘Médecins Sans Frontières/Doctors Without Borders’ when you make your gift.
Sharegift will handle the valuation and transfer of shares on your behalf.
For shares worth more than £1,000
There are two easy options:
- You can sell these shares and make a donation to MSF.
- MSF can support with an Exchange of Letters (if you would like to sell your shares on MSF’s behalf).
If you would like to arrange an Exchange of Letters or donate shares worth more than £100,000, please contact our Philanthropy team by emailing email@example.com.
Need more information?
You can find further information on gifting shares to charity on the HMRC website. MSF is unable to provide advice on income and capital gains tax relief, and you should always consult your own financial adviser.
