Donating Stocks & Shares
An alternative to giving money can be the donation of shares or securities. There can be significant tax efficiencies and you should seek professional financial advice before proceeding.
If you decide to donate some shares to Norwich Theatre Royal (registered charity no: 262259), please let us know in advance to enable us to make the necessary arrangements for your gift and help the transferral go as smoothly as possible.
To transfer the shares in paper form (certificates), the process is as follows:
1) You obtain a stock transfer form from the Registrar.
2) Fill out and sign the form. (You can see a sample transfer form here)
3) Return the completed form to the Registrar of Shares with original Share Certificate.
4) Norwich Theatre Royal will receive a new Share Certificate in their name.
If your stocks are held electronically, in either a Corporate Nominee Account (administered by the Registrar) or a Stockbrokers Nominee Account (administered by a Stockbroker), you will have to contact the Nominee in order to check their precise requirements for transferring the shares.
You must keep a dated copy of the transfer form and correspondence with the charity to establish the value of the shares when they were transferred, so you can claim the tax relief.
