Give shares – share water

Are you one of the 12 million people in the UK who own shares? Did you know that you can use these shares – whatever their number or value – to help WaterAid bring safe water and sanitation to some of the poorest people in the developing world?

Giving shares is simple and one of the most tax-efficient ways of making a donation to WaterAid. Not only can you claim full income tax relief on the value of the shares but, in addition, no capital gains tax will apply. For WaterAid gifts of shares help us to keep our administration costs low, meaning that we can raise valuable funds even more efficiently.
Your shares could make a big difference: if it costs just £15 to provide a person with a lasting supply of clean, safe water, effective sanitation and hygiene education, imagine what you could help us to achieve!  By donating shares to WaterAid, you can share the gift of safe water with some of Africa and Asia’s poorest and most marginalised communities.
