By donating publicly traded securities with accrued gains directly to a registered charity, you can receive a charitable donation receipt for the fair market value of the securities, and also eliminate the capital gains tax that would have been payable if they were sold on the market. Your charitable donation receipt will be valued at the closing price on the date when the shares are transferred to our custodial agent, CIBC Wood Gundy.
To make such a gift is easy, download the Securities Transfer Form (PDF) and follow the instructions. If you require assistance, call 416-645-6000 ext. 1120 to speak with Viji Hariharan.
