Donating Securities is Easy as 1, 2, 3 and it’s Tax Smart

When you donate securities directly to a registered charity like Spinal Cord Injury Ontario you pay no capital gains tax on the appreciated value of your securities, and you will receive a tax receipt for their market value. 

Your gift will result in a tax credit that will reduce your income taxes in the year of your gift – or you can carry it forward for up to five years.

Securities like stocks, mutual funds and bonds that have appreciated in value and face a significant tax hit are a very cost effective way to donate.
