If you have shares which are uneconomical to sell, you may be able to help Raystede animals by donating them through ShareGift.
Often, smaller number of shares can be more hassle than they are worth. Selling them can cost as much as, or more than, the value of the shares themselves. There are also tax implications, as income from shares, no matter how small, must be declared.
Raystede have to raise £120 per day to feed the animals in our care, so even small amounts of shares can help to rehome more unwanted and abandoned pets.
If you are a UK taxpayer, you can claim income tax relief on the value of most stocks and securities when you donate them to a charity. In addition, donating shares charitably gives rise to neither a gain nor a loss for Capital Gains Tax (CGT) purposes.
