Giving Shares
ShareGift was set up in 1996 to provide a charitable solution to the problem of unwanted small holdings of shares. Even if you have just one or two shares you can give them to charity through ShareGift. 

ShareGift collects shares, sells them and uses the proceeds to make donations to a wide range of UK charities.

Leaving a Legacy
Remembering the Disasters Emergency Committee in your will can help DEC continue its work in the future and give future generations a chance at life. 

Charitable bequests are free of inheritance tax. Discuss with your solicitor if you would like to leave a legacy to the DEC.

Donate at Work

Giving through your payroll or through matched giving are easy ways to donate to the DEC.
