Appeal Donation of Securities

Donation of Stocks, Bonds and Mutual Funds

Take advantage of the tax benefit and donate your stocks, bonds and mutual funds directly to the Foundation to help Cain lead a long and full life.


A gift of marketable securities can be a tax-effective way for you to make a donation in support of Cain. The tax on your investment’s capital gain (the difference between what you paid for the securities and their current value) is reduced to zero. This doubles the savings for you as there are no taxes on the capital gain and you receive a charitable tax receipt for the value of the securities, just as if you donated the equal amount in cash.


Securities eligible for gifting to CancerCare Manitoba Foundation are listed securities or publicly traded securities, which include:

  • Stocks and bonds
  • Treasury bills
  • Mutual funds offered by most Canadian mutual fund management companies


CancerCare Manitoba Foundation has engaged the services of BMO Nesbitt Burns to facilitate the receipt of security donations. We recommend you submit the Securities Transfer Form no later than Friday, December 16 to your financial advisor to have your gift count toward this tax year.

For self-managed gifts of securities, we recommend you submit a Letter of Direction to your Financial Institution or Discount Broker.

When leaving a gift of marketable securities in your will, CancerCare Manitoba Foundation encourages you to discuss your intentions with your legal and/or financial advisors to help choose the best gift for you. 

Thank you for considering a gift in support of Cain. Your gift today may help discover alternative ways to treat bone cancers.
