The Council of Milton Abbey School has been reviewed by the American Fund for Charities and the board of the American Fund has determined that Milton Abbey School is a suitable organisation to receive grants from a US public charity.

Gifts of Publicly Quoted Shares

Since April 2000, donors are able to claim tax relief on the current value of publicly quoted shares if they are donating to a charity, in addition to the shares being exempt from capital gains tax liability, which makes such gifts extremely tax-efficient.

For example, a higher-rate taxpayer donating shares bought for £50,000 and now worth £100,000 could save £20,000 in capital gains tax and £40,000 in income tax relief.  So a gift worth £100,000 to Milton Abbey School could cost the donor just £40,000 (the level of capital gains tax liability depends upon how long the shares have been owned by the donor).

Gifts in Kind

Gifts in Kind, such as printing services, venues and catering can help Milton Abbey School to keep its overheads low.  If you think you might be able to help in this way please contact the Development Office on 01258 882234 or
