Gifting shares

Donating your shares to support Blue Cross is simple and a great way to help us continue caring for pets in crisis. It is a very tax-efficient way of donating to charity as you can claim tax relief on your gift. 

So, whether you have a pile of shares from a privatisation or demutualisation, or simply inherited a small number from a relative, every single one can help make a difference to our work.

Blue Cross works closely with ShareGift, a charity which specialises in collecting unwanted shares into saleable amounts and gives the proceeds to a variety of charities. ShareGift has been supporting Blue Cross since 1998, donating more than £100,000 in that time.

Blue Cross is unable to give financial advice, so if you are unsure about your personal tax situation, please contact HMRC on 0300 200 3300 or visit More information about ShareGift is available from their website,
