Securities Donation (Stocks, Bonds, & Mutual Funds)

Discover the most efficient way to donate to the Jerry Forbes Centre Foundation! By donating securities directly to a charity as opposed to selling them and donating the proceeds, the capital gains tax can be eliminated. This means more money for the charity and a greater charitable tax credit for you.

Higher tax savings for you. A donation of securities or mutual fund shares is the most efficient way to give charitably since the CAPITAL GAINS TAX DOES NOT APPLY.

Give More. Receive More. Your security or mutual fund donation means a larger donation for Jerry Forbes Centre Foundation. It also means a larger charitable tax receipt for YOU!

It’s simple and easy. Get started today!

  1. Fill in the CanadaHelps online SECURITIES DONATION FORM by December 17 to ensure a 2020 tax receipt. Upon completion, you will receive an email confirming all the details of your pledge.
