Donate your shares

If you have shares which are uneconomical to sell, you could support us by donating your small shareholdings to ShareGift, the share donation charity. ShareGift specialise in accepting small shareholdings that would cost more to sell than they are worth, generating substantial funding for charities. Simply mention the Foundling Museum when you make your gift.
