Donation of Stocks, Bonds and Mutual Funds

You can get tax benefits – and give Alyson hope for more tomorrows with her loved ones – by donating your stocks, bonds and mutual funds directly to the Foundation

A gift of marketable securities can be a tax-effective way for you to make a donation in support of Alyson. 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 had 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 to your financial advisor as soon as possible to help with the purchase of a new cryostat.  For self-managed gifts of securities, we recommend you submit a Letter of Direction to your Financial Institution or Discount Broker.

Donor Advised Funds

When making a gift through your Donor Advised Fund, we ask you to take the following steps:

  1. Contact to advise that the gift will be coming. This ensures that your gift will be recognized and you can remain informed of the impact of your generosity.   
  2. Ask your host company to ensure your contact information is shared with The Foundation. This will allow us to confirm receipt of your gift, which is not always possible without your express consent.

Thank you for considering a gift in support of Manitobans like Alyson with currently incurable cancers. Your gift today will help discover new treatments in the labs at the Research Institute
