WE WELCOME YOUR DONATION

GIFTS OF SECURITIES

Donate appreciated stocks, bonds, mutual funds, segregated funds and flow-through shares and take advantage of tax benefits.

A gift of securities is a cost-effective opportunity to transform an asset into immediate and significant support for The Calgary Children’s Foundation. By donating publicly traded securities, you eliminate the capital gains tax that becomes payable if you were to sell the appreciated securities on the market and donate the proceeds from the sale to the Calgary Children’s Foundation.

The benefits of donating securities include:

  • Satisfaction of seeing your gift put to good use today

  • A charitable tax receipt

  • No capital gains tax paid

  • Donating part of your stock and retaining the remainder for personal use
