Gifts of Securities

Not only can a securities donation make an even bigger difference to your favourite charity, it can also reduce how much you owe come tax time.

When shares are sold, there are typically taxes on the capital gains, even if you plan to donate the proceeds. When you donate your securities directly to the Children’s Cottage, the capital gains are not subject to tax, and you will benefit from a tax receipt for the full value of your eligible securities. Securities are the single most tax-efficient way to give because they eliminate any capital gains tax. That means more money for a charity you love and a greater tax credit for yourself.

As you plan your year-end giving we wanted to share this method of giving as an option. Please contact us for more information at:
