Why Donate Securities?

The largest emerging trend in charitable giving in Canada are gifts of securities. Gifts of securities can consist of appreciated stocks, bonds, or mutual funds, given to a charity in your name.

Like a regular donation of funds, these gifts are eligible for a tax receipt, and can be donated at any time!

Many of our donors make an annual gift of their donation of securities. This way, they can make a contribution to the shelter each year without worrying about saving personal funds for charitable giving. Gifts of securities make it easier to give larger gifts over a greater period of time with minimal work on the donor’s part.
