Through a Gifts of Securities

Gifts of stocks and securities enable you to give the most to the Foundation for the least cost. With stocks, you only pay capital gains when you sell or “realize” the increase in the value of the stock over and above what you paid for it. When you donate securities to our charity, you do not pay tax on appreciated capital gains.*

Kindly note: If you would like a 2023 tax receipt for your gift of securities, you will need to donate the shares to the Foundation by November 30, 2023. Contact us for more information. 

* The federal government is proposing changes to the AMT (Alternative Minimim Tax) that would increase the capital gains on gifts of securities from 0% to 30%. Speak with your professional advisor on what this might mean for you.

Please contact our office at 519-938-0780 or to get the information that your broker or financial advisor will need in order to make the transfer.
