Gifts of securities

In 2006, the Canadian government eliminated the tax on capital gains when securities are donated to a private charity. Under this law, you are able to give securities directly to a charity, pay no taxes and receive a charitable tax receipt for the fair market value of the securities

Consider making a gift of securities rather than cash/cheque to receive very favourable tax incentives. You can also donate mutual funds to the GCA, by clicking on the button below

We advise all of our donors to consult a financial advisor prior to making sizeable charitable gifts.
