Share giving

Our vision is a world free from the effects of multiple sclerosis. Our mission is to enable everyone affected by MS to live life to their full potential and secure the care and support they need. Our aim is stop MS. By making a donation of shares, you are helping the MS Society accomplish this.   

Benefits of donating shares 

  • Donating shares is one of the most tax-effective ways you can give money to the MS Society. When you donate shares, you do not have to pay any capital gains tax for the donated shares. 
  • Additionally you can claim income tax relief equal to the value of the donated shares according to your income tax rate (40% for higher rate taxpayers and 45% for highest rate taxpayers).  

In order to qualify for the 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
