Corporate Gifts & Donation of Shares


Gifts from companies and partnerships can be made tax-efficient. Companies can claim Corporation Tax on all donations to the MGS Trust. When a company gives to the MGS Trust, the value of the gift can be offset against the company's highest rate of Corporation Tax. Company gifts can be made on a regular or one-off basis. The School is also happy to form sponsorship links to provide employers with recruitment access to MGS pupils and Old Boys.

More information about corporate giving can be found here.


Gifts of publicly quoted shares are a tax-efficient way for both individuals and companies to help support the MGS Trust. When donors give shares to the MGS Trust they can get substantial relief on their income tax bill, as well as exemption from Capital Gains Tax on any gains they may have made on the shares. With the higher rates of Income Tax and Capital Gains Tax currently at 40-45%, this can amount to a substantial tax break and all the tax relief goes to the donor.
