Securities

Supporting Museum London and Saving Taxes

A gift of securities to Museum London can be both tax-effective and help keep the museum a first-class community of culture for its visitors.

The tax advantages

Since May 2006, donations of publicly listed securities such as stocks, bonds and mutual funds to public charities have been exempt from capital gains tax. This offers donors the opportunity to realize major tax savings while at the same time supporting the first-class educational experience offered by Museum London. The following example shows how, if you own securities and wish to donate them to Museum London, considerable tax savings are possible:
