Leaving a gift of shares to the County Air Ambulance Trust is a relatively new way of making a donation to the Charity and one which could certainly help us to reach our goals.
This new and innovative fundraising initiative has been launched as an alternative way for the public to donate to the Charity following a donation by one of our supporters. We have an account with Barclays Stockbrokers and all transactions are very simple to administer. We are finding people are considering alternative ways in which to donate to our charity rather than just a cash donation and a gift of shares is just another and different way of supporting us.
For donors with investments, a gift of shares is a very effective way of making a donation to the County Air Ambulance Trust or our HELP Appeal because the donation will be eligible for income tax relief and is also exempt from Capital Gains Tax (CGT).
After receiving shares, we can hold on to them or sell them in accordance with our fundraising strategy and financial needs at any given time.
However you decide to support us, you can be sure your money is helping to save lives.
