Tax-Efficient Giving from Europe

Transnational Giving Europe (TGE) is a collaborative giving scheme offered by a partnership of European foundations. It enables donors resident in one of the participating countries to offer financial support to non-profit organisations in other member countries.

The countries which allow you to donate through Transnational Giving are: Belgium, Bulgaria, France, Germany, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Switzerland, Spain, and the UK.

There is a map on the TGE website which highlights all of the countries that are covered, and which can direct you to a page where you can find out more about the partner organisation that TGE works with in your country.

Employer and Company Giving

Many companies match employee donations and organise payroll giving schemes so your support can have even more impact, please let us know if we can help organise this for you.

Making a Gift of Shares

Individuals who give shares to charity are entitled to claim back full tax relief against the value of those shares at their usual tax rate, whether that be 20%, 40% or 50%. No capital gains tax will apply. Tax relief is available to UK taxpayers donating shares and securities listed on the UK Stock Market, the Alternative Investment Market, and recognised stock exchanges overseas. It is also available for units in a UK unit trust, shares in a UK open-ended investment company (OEIC), and some similar foreign investments.

Please get in touch if you’d like to make a gift of shares.
