Selling your shares through ShareGift Australia is a great way for you to donate to Save the Children.
It is simple and tax effective to sell your shares through ShareGift Australia. What’s even better is that the profits from the sale of the shares will help us support and protect children in Australia and overseas.
How it works
ShareGift Australia is a not-for-profit organisation that provides Australian shareholders with the opportunity to sell their shares and donate the proceeds to charity. Selling and donating through ShareGift Australia means you don’t have to engage a stockbroker, there are no brokerage fees and you can nominate Save the Children to benefit from ShareGift Australia distributions. The full market value of the sold shares becomes your gift towards Save the Children's work in Australia and around the world.
How to donate through your shares
To make a donation to Save the Children using ShareGift Australia, simply:
- Complete and print the donation form.
Post the form directly to ShareGift Australia at ShareGift Australia, GPO Box 4370, Melbourne VIC 3001.
- ShareGift Australia will then arrange for the shares to be sold through one of their participating brokers - free of brokerage/GST charges - and send the donation of the proceeds to Save the Children.
- After the sale, you will receive a letter from ShareGift Australia, advising the details of the sale and your receipt for tax purposes (for donations more than $2.00).
Save the Children specialises in delivering programs that assist disadvantaged children in 120 countries around the world. Your donation will help us continue our life-saving health programs, ensure children access quality education and protect children in times of emergency. Please note that we are unable to provide tax-related advice.
