ShareGift Australia

Australia has one of the highest levels of share ownership in the world (6.48 million people). 

Each year, more and more Australians are looking to leverage their shareholdings as part of their giving strategy. A fraction of ASX’s current market capitalisation of around $1.5 trillion would easily generate a huge shift in philanthropic funding in Australia.

ShareGift Australia’s purpose is to make it easy and cost effective for shareholders to support the community through the donation of shares to charity and to grow philanthropy in Australia. WIRES is a listed charity for ShareGift Australia.
