Donating a gift in memory of a loved one can be a really positive way of honouring a life.
Giving a gift in memory will allow The Prince's Trust to help more young people who need guidance and a helping hand towards reaching their potential, building their confidence and having a chance to succeed. You can do this by holding collections at a funeral service or even setting up an in memoriam tribute page online using JustGiving. If you’d like to talk to our team about how a gift in honour of your loved ones can change lives, please get in touch using the button below. See Prince's Trust donors in action on JustGiving here.
Asking your friends and family to give donations to The Prince's Trust can be a great way to mark a special occasion. We can send you fundraising materials such as balloons, collection tins and stickers to raise awareness at your celebration or you can set up your own page on JustGiving. We always love to hear about celebrations being held in aid of The Trust. What better present than to know you and your loved ones have helped to change a young person's life?

There are tax benefits to giving shares: you can claim income tax relief on the value of most shares, equal to the market value of the shares on the day you make the gift, together with any associated costs such as broker's fees.
So if you donate £1,000 worth of shares, you'll pay £400 less in income tax that year if you're a higher rate taxpayer and £220 less if you're on the standard rate.
You will not have to pay capital gains tax on any increase in the value of shares since you bought them, which in theory could mean an extra 'saving' of up to 40% for a higher rate tax payer.
How do you donate your shares to The Prince's Trust?
Obtain a stock transfer from the registrar of the company in which you have shares. The registrar's name should be at the bottom of your share certificate.
Complete, sign and date the stock transfer form (keep a copy) and send it, together with the share certificate, to:
The Prince's Trust South London Centre,
8 Glade Path,
Shares too small? Donate via ShareGift
If you're holding shares in quantities so small it would cost more than they're worth to sell them, then ShareGift can help - just suggest The Prince's Trust as the benefiting charity.
