James Gibb Stuart Trust

Support Us

We Represent Value for Money

The James Gibb Stuart Trust has extremely low running costs. Unlike many charitable bodies, we have absolutely no office rental charges, no overheads, no repair costs, and no employee costs. All our projects are contracted to self-employed researchers and organisers, at very reasonable rates, and whose work is monitored and evaluated by the Directors on a regular basis. Moreover, we have virtually no admin costs. All monies are spent on delivering the specific projects. Consequently, the Trust is able to run at low cost and provide very good value for money.

If you would like to support our work financially then please consider the following options.

Remember us in your Will

All charities rely, often predominantly, upon legacy donations. If you want your beliefs to live on after you have departed, then please consider leaving a legacy to the Trust. You need only specify that a certain sum is to be left to “The James Gibb Stuart Trust” at the address below.

Here’s 3 More Tax Efficient Ways to Help Yourself and Us at the Same Time

1. Donate your Income Tax Rebate: If you fill in an income tax Self Assessment Tax Return then you can tick Form SA100 which is included in a Self Assessment Tax Return (or it can be downloaded at www.hmrc.gov.uk/forms/sa100-charity.pdf) and all, or part, of any tax rebate can be paid automatically to our charity. You need only quote our “SA Donate” number on your form. The Trust’s unique “SA Donate” number is TAU84SG. Any rebate due as a result of Gift Aid can also be passed on this way. That’s an easy way to help us.

2. Donate, and Avoid Capital Gains Tax: A donation of an asset to charity, whether land, property or shares, is not liable to Capital Gains Tax, even if the asset is worth more when you donate it than when you acquired it. This applies whether you make the donation while you are alive, or in your Will. You can also sell a property to a charity for less than the market value and obtain relief.

3. Donate, and Receive Income Tax Relief: You can donate land, property or shares to a charity and deduct the value from your total taxable income for the tax year in which you made the gift. For 2 and 3, see: www.hmrc.gov.uk/individuals/giving/assets.htm
