Legacies and giving shares

Leave a legacy

This is a picture of a little girl using a walking frame. Leaving a donation to Parents for Children in your will is a wonderful way to offer a real future to vulnerable children. Charitable gifts are exempt from inheritance tax, so your legacy to us would effectively reduce any tax on your estate.

If you would like to leave a legacy to Parents for Children you will need to talk to your solicitor about including this in your will.

Giving shares

Giving stocks, shares or other investments to Parents for Children is a tax-efficient way of helping us. Gifts of this type are exempt from capital gains tax, and can reduce your taxable income by the value of your gift.

What sort of investments qualify?

  • shares and securities listed or dealt on a recognised stock exchange, in the UK or elsewhere
  • units in UK authorised unit trusts
  • shares in UK open-ended investment companies
  • holdings in some foreign collective investment schemes

If you would like more information about leaving a legacy or giving shares, contact [email protected], or call 020 7520 2880 to talk to out fundraising team.
