Donation of Stocks, Bonds & Mutual Funds

Share this page by email

A gift of marketable securities can be a tax-effective way for you to make a donation in support of Ruby. 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

We recommend you submit the Securities Transfer Form no later than Friday, December 15 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.
Thank you for considering a gift in support of kids like Ruby. Your gift today may help discover new treatments for leukemias.
