Other Ways of Giving
Make a gift of stocks or shares
Making a charitable gift of shares can be a highly tax effective way of donating money to the Arnold Foundation because you may benefit from both capital gains tax relief and income tax relief.
Charitable gifts of shares are free from capital gains tax and individuals can claim income tax relief, at their highest rate, for the full market value of shares on the date of transfer to the Arnold Foundation.
In order to qualify for the tax relief, the shares or securities must be listed or dealt on a recognized UK or foreign stock exchange, units in authorised unit trusts, shares in a UK open-ended investment company or holdings in certain foreign collective investment schemes.
Please contact the Development Office for further information.
Sign up to Payroll Giving
If you pay tax through PAYE, Payroll Giving offers a way to reduce the cost to you of making regular gifts. If your employer or company/personal pension provider runs a Payroll Giving Scheme, you can authorise them to make the donation from your wages or pension before deducting any tax. You complete a form for the Payroll Giving agency to tell them where to send your donations.
These donations are made after your National Insurance contributions are calculated but before Income Tax is deducted. You only pay tax on the balance and get tax relief immediately on your donation, at your highest rate of tax.
Payroll giving does not affect any other donations you make to charity and do not need to be entered on your Self Assessment tax return.
Please contact your employer for more information.
Give via CAF or a charitable foundation
CAF is a well-established charitable foundation that works with donors and charities to make the most of tax efficient giving. You may choose to make a gift from your own CAF account, or Donor Advised Fund, or your own charitable foundation. Although the Arnold Foundation cannot claim gift aid on these gifts, you may find this is the most tax efficient way for you to support the causes that are closest to you.
