Donate property, shares and valuables

Donating your shares to Royal Voluntary Service is one of the most tax-effective ways you can give, as you won't have to pay any capital gains tax on the shares you donate and you can claim income tax relief too.

How do I donate my shares?

You can donate share holdings of any value to help Royal Voluntary Service continue to make life better for even more older people.

Larger share holdings will be sold by our stockbrokers.

Donations of smaller holdings of shares will be forwarded to ShareGift, an independent charity which specialises in accepting donations of shares (especially small holdings which would be uneconomic to sell).  ShareGift distributes the ultimate proceeds from the sale of these shares to a wide range of registered charities, including Royal Voluntary Service.

Please print out the shares donation form, fill it in and send it to us with the share certificate(s) that you want to donate to:

Royal Voluntary Service
Beck Court
Cardiff Gate Business Park
CF23 8RP

We'll contact you to confirm how we will be processing your donation and what, if anything, else you need to do.

Donating valuables

We also appreciate the gift of any valuables such as jewellery, works of art or property which can be sold to support our life changing services.  If you would like to donate any valuable items to Royal Voluntary Service, please get in touch.  Call us on  029 2073 9000 or email
