Donate Your Shares
Do you have shares worth less than £500 sitting in a drawer earning you little or no income or growth?
If so, why not think about donating those shares to the Kernos Centre? It’s a simple and tax efficient way of getting rid of them – while at the same time helping us. And you do not have to pay capital gains tax on their disposal!
Contact ShareGift on 0207 930 3737 (quoting The Kernos Centre) and they will help you donate any of your unwanted shares to us.
Leaving a legacy gift to Kernos is the ultimate gesture in helping our work with vulnerable people – something that you will be remembered for and that will make a tremendous difference to their lives.
Since Kernos is a charity, the value of your gift will be deducted from your estate before Inheritance Tax is calculated. Gifts made in the seven years before your death also qualify for exemption.
You can either leave Kernos a fixed sum – a ‘Pecuniary Legacy’ – or part or all of your estate once other gifts have been distributed – a ‘Residuary Legacy’. You can do this through your will, or by a declaration to the executors or personal representatives giving instructions as to how you would like your legacy to be distributed.
You just need to ensure that it completely clear that you want the Kernos Centre to receive your gift by specifying our full name and address details.
It is a good idea to use a solicitor, or have a solicitor check the will that you have drawn up, to ensure that it’s valid and that your wishes are properly carried out.
In Memoriam Giving
Some people prefer to ask funeral congregations to donate to a charity rather than buy flowers. Supporting the Kernos Centre with a memorial donation can help you make a big difference for vulnerable people in the local community.
