Securities and Mutual Funds
Donate Securities and Mutual Funds On-Line
Publicly trading securities that are donated to a registered Canadian charity are completely exempt from the capital gains tax that is normally triggered when a security is sold or given away. This means you can support the work of LOFT and receive the full tax benefit from your gift, without having to pay tax on the capital gain.
If you currently hold publicly trading securities that have grown in value since you purchased them, donating the securities will actually cost you less than the amount of your donation, and potentially much less than it would cost to sell the securities and donate the proceeds.
You can click on the button above, or our Development Department can provide the form you need to initiate an electronic transfer, or to sign over ownership of share certificates.
