Giving shares is one of the most tax-efficient ways to make a donation and support the vital work of WWF.  You won’t have to pay any capital gains tax on your share donation and you can also claim tax relief on your gift too.  

To qualify for this tax relief, the shares or securities must be: 

  • listed or dealt on a recognised UK or foreign stock exchange 
  • units in authorised unit trusts 
  • shares in a UK open-ended investment company 
  • holdings in certain foreign collective investment schemes. 

To find out more, please contact Katy via email at who would be delighted to discuss share-giving in more detail with you and help you make share giving as easy as possible.  

Please note that WWF cannot claim Gift Aid on a share donation or provide tax advice to any of our supporters. To discuss your personal tax situation, please contact the HM Revenue & Customs helpline on 0845 900 0444 or visit the HMRC website.
