Gifts of Stocks and Shares

Donors worldwide can make a gift of shares or stock. This option offers the most generous tax relief available to donors, combining relief on income and capital gains tax. In the UK, share gifts qualify for tax relief equal to the market value of the shares on the day the gift is made, including associated costs such as broker fees. The tax relief can be claimed for the year in which the gift is made. You can make your gift towards our greatest needs, or direct your gift to an area of your choice, including scholarship funding, research or capital projects.

Please contact the development team for further information.

Legacy and in memory giving

Remembering the School in your will is a gift to future generations of students and researchers. Supporters have left legacies to the School ranging from £200 to £2.5 million. All are greatly appreciated, and all make a difference.

What can my legacy support?
You can choose to support any aspect of the School's work, from student scholarships to research on a specific disease. Or you can simply choose to support areas of greatest need - a powerful way to ensure the School can fund critical work at short notice.

Making your pledge
To recognise and honour future legacies today, we appreciate knowing if you intend to remember the School in your will. A non-binding pledge form is available for download, as is a form to send your solicitor indicating your intention.

In memory giving
Making a gift to the School in memory of a loved one will enable us to keep their memory alive through our ground breaking work. You can choose to make your gift towards research, scholarships, or infrastructure. To find out more about in memory giving please contact the Development and Alumni Relations Office, , +44 (0)20 7927 4772

Trusts, foundations and corporate supporters

The growth of the School and the reach of our work is almost entirely dependent upon the generosity of individuals, trusts, foundations and corporate donors. You can make your gift towards our greatest needs, or you can direct your gift to a specialism of your choice, whether that is towards one of our Centres or towards students studying a particular topic.
