Securities

People who own stocks, bonds or mutual funds are pleased to see their investmenst increase in value. Unfortunately, when converted back to cash, any capital gains are taxable.

By donating your publicly listed securities to the Foundation in kind, you py no captial gains tax on their increase in value.

After your donation is received into our brokerage account, we will provide you with a charitable tax receipt for the full market value on the day they are received. This tax receipt:

 

  • helps reduce the amount of income tax you pay
  • may be carried forward and used in any of the next five years
  • may help reduce the taxes payable by your estate in the year of death, allowing more of your estate to go to your beneficiaries

For assistance with making a gift of publicly listed securities, please contact Willard VanderPloeg, Charitable Giving Advisor at (519)376-3925 or Beverley Boswell, Executive Director at (519)534-5856.
