A good education is a gift for life and we believe Morrison’s Academy delivers the best education available. Academic success is integral to what we do, but we offer so much more and we would love to extend our provision further. Whether you are considering donating money to our Bursary programme or would like to give to our New Initiatives Fund you will be increasing access to an outstanding education for more talented children.

Giving shares rather than cash donations could be more than an act of generosity. - it could be a wise investment decision because of the tax relief which can be claimed on the value of donated shares. You as the donor can claim tax relief equal to the market value of the shares on the day you make the transfer, together with any associated costs such as broker's fees. The relief is against your income tax for the year. For example, if you donate £1000 worth of shares and you are a higher-rate taxpayer, you will pay £400 less in income tax that year.
Additionally, you will not have to pay any capital gains tax (CGT) on any increase in the value of the shares since you bought them
If you are a UK taxpayer, you can make your donation worth more to Morrison's Academy by signing a Gift Aid declaration which informs HM Revenue and Customs that you wish to add tax, already paid, to your donation. It doesn't cost you anything more but it could mean an extra 25 pence for each pound you give. It really does make a difference.
