Philanthropic Giving

Major Donations

Major gifts allow Spurgeons to respond quickly to the needs of the vulnerable children and young people we help. We are immensely grateful for the major gifts we receive.

Making a Major Difference

We like to build long-term relationships with our major donors, fully involving you in all aspects of the project you are supporting, or not involving you at all if you prefer.

It’s important to us that we explain the needs of our various projects and communities, while understanding your needs as donors and giving you insights into the life-changing difference your money makes.

Keeping you updated with your Spurgeons Project

Our dedicated Major Donor Team will keep you updated and will provide you with six-monthly reports on the project you are supporting. If you would like to, we are happy to arrange regular meetings or a visit to your project. We will also invite you to events that may be of interest.

Support our General Fund

If you would like us to allocate your donation to a particular project or specific area of our work, we are very happy to do so. However, you can choose to give your donation to our General Fund and Spurgeons will decide where best to to use your gift. Be assured that, whether for a specific project or our General Fund, your donation will be supporting some of the UK’s most vulnerable children and young people.

What are the possible tax benefits for me if I donate shares to Spurgeons?

If you donate shares to Spurgeons, you can get income tax relief on the donation. If you are a higher-rate taxpayer and donate £1,000 worth of shares, you will get £400 tax relief. Or, if you pay tax at the standard rate, the relief would be £220.

You can claim this on your self- assessment tax form, or by contacting your local Tax Office.

Spurgeons is not registered to dispense financial advice, so please discuss selling of shares with your financial advisor or HMRC.
