Gifts of Shares and Property

Making a gift of shares or other property (house, piece of land or other physical item of property) is an easy and tax-efficient way of supporting charities.

Making this type of gift exempts you from Capital Gains Tax on the item(s) donated and also attracts Income Tax Relief.

There are two ways in which you can make a donation of property and/or shares:

  1. You can transfer the property to LCVS and/or shares to our stockbroker, who will sell them immediately upon receipt and pass the cash value of your gift (less the broker’s cost if applicable) to your Charity Account
  2. You can sell the property/ shares yourself and pass the proceeds to LCVS to be credited to your Charity Account . We will need to provide you with a written agreement to do this.

If you would like to find out more about making a gift of property or shares, please get in touch with our Donor Services team on 0151 227 5177 or email
