Choose a manageable donation amount and start supporting homeless young people every month. If the amount you can give changes or you need to cancel, just inform your work's payroll department. Your donation is deducted from your salary before tax, so a £10 pledge will only cost £8 for a standard rate tax payer or £6 for a higher rate tax payer.
I was quite scared when I first came to Centrepoint. I had no prospects and I was suffering from anxiety. Their patience and the time they took out of their day to just sit with me and go through my work really helped me get back on track
Thousands of people own small amounts of shares they’re not sure what to do with, often from an inheritance or company privatisation. You may not have thought to do anything with them, in case it resulted in more paperwork than income! Centrepoint accepts any donation of shares, whatever the size.
Your unwanted shares can give homeless young people a future.
Thousands of people own small amounts of shares they’re not sure what to do with, for reasons such as an inheritance or company privatisation. You may not have thought to do anything with them, for fear of generating more paperwork than income.
Centrepoint accepts any donation of shares, whatever the size.
There are three simple steps to donating shares:
1. Transfer the gift of shares to Centrepoint
2. Keep evidence of the gift, the date it was made and Centrepoint's acceptance
3. Claim the appropriate tax relief
Please be aware that if you receive any benefit as a result of making the gift of shares, this will reduce your tax relief. Speak to your accountant or a broker, or contact us on 0800 23 23 20 to organise a transfer.
