There are other ways to give to Soho Theatre, including:
Give by shares
As well as donating gifts of money, you can also help Soho Theatre by gifting shares.
This can provide us with a significant source of income and can also be a very tax-effective way for you to give. There is the potential for you to claim income tax relief on the value of the shares at the rate of tax you pay (please refer to the HMRC guidance notes for more details). You are able to donate your relief straight back to us through your self-assessment tax return. You can also choose to sell the shares yourself and then donate the proceeds to Soho Theatre. There are of course different tax implications should you choose to do this. For more information, see HMRC’s website.
Soho Theatre does not hold an investment portfolio, and we would sell any shares given to us in this way as efficiently as possible.
Leave a Legacy
You can choose to leave a gift to Soho Theatre in your will. You can either leave us a fixed amount of money, an item or what’s left after other gifts have been given out to your beneficiaries. Your donation will either be taken off the value of your estate before Inheritance Tax is calculated or reduce your Inheritance Tax rate, if more than 10% of your estate is left to charity.
You can find out how to write or update your will, including how to make sure it’s legal by visiting the HMRC guidance notes.
If you are a US taxpayer, you may prefer to make a donation to Soho Theatre in US dollars. We work with The American Fund for Charities to process donations coming from supporters who prefer to pay in American currency.
If you are thinking of donating through any of these alternatives to Soho Theatre, please contact the Development Team on 0207 478 0107 or by email to Bhavita Bhatt .
